Fall on the Farm was a spectacular day. 1500 visitors came to experience the exhibits, the entertainment, the food and all the activities of the day. It seemed this crop of visitors was particularly interested in our pioneer demonstrations. Large groups gathered round the pig-butchering and chicken-slaughtering tables. An unusually large group of guests participated in the guided village tour conducted by volunteer tour-guide, Henry Dueck. The stationary threshing machine demonstration powered by two horses also generated considerable interest. The Southeast Draft Horse Association deserves kudos for getting this machine into operation. As always, it was gratifying to see many families with young children enjoying a fun day at the museum.
