Come enjoy blacksmithing demonstrations in the historic blacksmith shop and the teaching studio.

Our teamsters will have the draft horses and oxen out to illustrate the skills of working safely and effectively on a farm using animal power.

Learn about ox yokes and why the New England style of neck yoke works so well.
