Breaking Up Fallow Ground

02/16/2019 - 02/17/2019, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Dr. Jones noted in his journal on Feb. 7, 1855 – “Commenced breaking up prairie in the east Field.”  As we look to Spring planting, we’re taking the first step of plowing and harrowing the future corn field. Come see our strong oxen at work and try your hand at walking behind a plow! This is a special focus weekend at the farm. Contact Ben Baumgartner for more information at 936-878-2214 x246.
