This children's event features a hay slide, needle in the hay stack, corn husk doll making, lumberjacks, sack races, bean bag toss, hay maze, candle making, scavenger hunt, rubber ducky races, whizzers, and much more. Watch a woman defend herself when accused of witchcraft. Will she be able to avoid arrest and possible burning at the stake? 

Refreshments will be available for purchase. Leave the electronic games behind and enjoy fun on the farm the way it has been enjoyed for generations.
