As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, farmers need to get the last of their crops harvested, processed, and stored for the winter. Experience the last days of harvest in a festive work atmosphere on the historic Kelley Farm.

At the historic farmstead, visitors can help finish up field work, husk corn, and store produce in the root cellar. Then, help finish the last batches of pickles, make corn husk dolls, or join a quilting bee.

In the Farm Lab, help harvest the last of the garden produce and mix feed for the livestock. Plus, see demonstrations of modern preservation techniques, such as canning, freezing and dehydrating, in the Learning Kitchen and make a decorative harvest arrangement to take home.
