Farm Skills- Wool Crafting

(7-14 yrs.) Sheep are important animals to livestock farmers as they can provide milk, meat, and fiber. Learn to wash fleece by hand and discover how to prepare wool for spinning by using a drum carder. Then, make a hand spun wool bracelet or felted wool flower. One adult must accompany each registered child in this program.

Making Stone Soup

(7-Adult) Learn how easy and satisfying it is to prepare home-cooked soups in winter. Together, the group creates a new soup of our own based on the story of “Stone Soup”. Participants also learn the history and origins of several different ethnic soup styles and sample each style featured. This program takes place in the historic Floris Schoolhouse kitchen. Take home a serving of "Stone Soup" to enjoy.

Old-fashioned Candy Making Party!

Meet new friends as we make candy and sample refreshments from the olden days. Historic farm interpreters lead a program that includes exhibits of an early-20th-century farmhouse, a brief history of candy-making and an outdoor, wood-burning stove demonstration (weather permitting). Dress for the weather and to get messy at this unique, hands-on experience. On Tuesday, January 28th, we will be mashing and rolling out candy with participants ages 4 to adult. On Saturday, February 8th, it’s a taffy pull for ages 10 to adult. (These programs are not recommended for those with allergies to nuts or dairy.) A registered adult must accompany registered children younger than 10.
