Rites of Spring & Sea Farming at Bushnell Farm
Sponsored by: Clark Group/ Bushnell Farm
Join us for Sheep Shearing at Noon, Flax Processing, and weaving throughout the day. Try your hand at Rope & Net-Making & watch the Blacksmith make fishing tools. Hear about salt hay, fish and seaweed as fertilizer. Visit the wigwam to see Indian fishing equipment & cooking- for like the Valley-Shore Farmer, Indians were also fishermen. We will be cooking fish on the hearth in the 1678 Bushnell House and demonstrators will be in the seven other buildings on the site. This is a great place for family-learning together.
