Foodways Day

Join us on Saturday August 20th for Foodways Day!

We will be cooking on all of our farms between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.  The dishes represent a common thread across the many cultures that helped create our unique American frontier culture.  For this Foodways Day, we’ll be focusing on special treats, soups, and bread.  Come watch & learn how to prepare some of these traditional dishes!

General Admission ticketing applies and of course it’s FREE for Annual Pass holders!
