Whether you have been previously or not, you will want to mark your calendars for Harvest Day on September 14th. Visit the museum and learn all about dairying! Have the chance to try cow-milking, as well as demonstrations on how to make cheese, butter and ice cream (sounds like a delicious way to spend the day if you ask me!)
Have you ever milked a cow before? I had the opportunity to try it out when I was much younger, and it was a very interesting experience. I am really big on making my own food, and have made butter a few times - much different experience when you have the convenience of a kitchen-aid mixer!
Admission to harvest day is very affordable at $16/family (or $6/person - $10/pair). The kids will have just started back to school, which can be really busy leaving not much time to connect as a family. Take a few hours out of your busy schedule and relax while having some quality time together.
