Getting ready for old St. Nick!
We started with an empty wagon... some mighty good corn pickers!
Making Corn Sticks and Scrapple in the farmhouse
Wooly Worm Forecasting at Howell Farm lead by Kelly Ryekema From Tulpehanking Nature Center

October – November
Children learn why our crop grows so high and what makes “open pollinated” kernels develop on the cob. Young harvesters will walk between the rows picking corn as they go – collecting the ears in a basket, pulling off the husks, and finally tossing them into a historic wagon. Next the group will walk up to the barnyard to find last year’s corn in the crib, before shelling and grinding it into buckets for animal feed. Finally, everyone visits the farmhouse kitchen to taste cornbread and learn why field corn is so important to people and animals alike!Learn More
