Learn from the ‘experts’ the stories of farming in southern, CT. These are not ‘how to’ stories, rather stories rich in character, history and the ‘I remember when’ stories. Learn how some inventions were instrumental to farming, yet how many of the inventions fall under the category ‘everything old is new again.’
As visitors gather at Blue Slope Country Museum in Franklin, CT they will enjoy some fresh stew as your special Yankee farmers share their own personal fun and informative stories not found in history books: like haying by hand and haymaker’s switchel, seeding and harvesting, hand milking as they attempt to provide a glimpse into the family dynamics and the value of hard work and play.
Stews and Stories will begin at 1:00 p.m, April 8th. This opportunity is one of a kind and will give guests a better perspective of the simpler but harder life filled with laughter and friendship. This program is recommended for ages 12 years and older. A donation of $5.00/person and reservations are strongly recommended for this presentation. Reservations can be made by calling Blue Slope at (860) 642- 6413 by April 3, 2017.
