Winter’s Day on the Farm at Fosterfield Living Historical Farm
Wagon Rides, Farm Animals, Ice Harvesting, Farm Chores, and More!
Submitted by Samantha Sayles
On Sunday, February 2, from 12 noon to 4 p.m., join an exciting, outdoor, family adventure, and experience traditional farm life as it was in the early 20th century at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.
Climb aboard the open-air, tractor pulled wagon for a memorable ride around the farm, and stop by the barnyard to meet the Jersey cows, horses, sheep, and chickens. Learn the importance of ice harvesting and what special tools were used. Pitch in, and help with daily farm chores, such as sawing and working with wood.
Take a break from the chilly, winter air, and visit the cozy Farmhouse where seasonal foods are cooking on the wood-burning cook stove. Stop by the Visitors Center to make a family-friendly craft, and check out the Transportation Exhibit to see Charles Foster’s Rockaway carriage and Caroline Foster’s Model ‘T’ Ford and Hupmobile. Be sure to try out all of the interactive displays!
Admission to this event is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors (65+), $6 for children ages 3 – 16, and free for children under age 3. Friends members are half price with a current membership card.
