Spring on the Farm,” will be celebrated at Sauder Village on Saturday, May 10 with activities including churning butter, making rope, stomping beans, gardening and much more!
During Spring on the Farm guests can watch sheep shearing demonstrations and there will be new baby animals to visit in the historic barns.
In the historic homes guests can help wash dandelion greens, churn butter, grate horseradish and roll out a pie crust. There will also be gardening activities (weather permitting), rope making, rug beating and window washing. The old-fashioned spelldown in the District 16 School is another favorite activity for youth to enjoy. Throughout the day costumed guides in the historic homes will be preparing dried foods stored from the fall. Other special demonstrations will include making corn cob jelly, making turnip kraut and making home-made soap.
Performances by special guest Bob Ford are also a traditional part of this family event.
