Corn Planting

Saturday, May 18 | 10:00–4:00

Children's Craft:  Corn Mosaic Sunflower (11:00–3:00)

Once the threat of frost is gone, farmers take to the fields to plant their last spring crop. On corn planting day, you can see them in action using workhorses and a circa-1900 planter. Head back to the barnyard to help shell and grind corn for the pigs and chickens...then make your way to the farmhouse to learn how corn is processed for baking, and sample some fresh-baked cornbread!
