Threshers & Combines Weekend

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Celebrate Labor Day Weekend and the culmination of the grain growing season at the Oliver Kelley Farm. Help farmers bring grain bundles in from the historic field, thresh the grain in an 1856 Cox and Roberts horse-powered threshing machine, bag up the grain, and rake away the straw.

Then compare that experience to a modern combine at the Farm Lab. Explore a variety of grains, their uses, and flavors in the Learning Kitchen in the visitor center.

Hours are 10 am-5 pm on Sept. 1, 2 & 3.
