2021 Home School Days

October 13, 2021 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Come the first or second Wednesday of October, from 10:00 to 2:00. Admission is $5.00 per person or $20 per family. Bring your picnic lunch and enjoy a day of hands-on history! No reservations required.

This event is different from our scheduled tours. After a brief orientation, families can decide how long they want to spend at each station, with time to explore more, take breaks, and talk about each activity with farm staff and volunteers. Cider press demonstration is another benefit of this special day for families.

In addition to the usual hands-on activities around the Farm, this year’s event will feature two optional lectures to engage your family. At 11:00, nationally recognized historic clothing expert Marge Harding will speak on “What She Wore on the Oregon Trail.”  At 1:00, Philip Foster Farm’s program director, Jennifer Goldman, will speak on Philip Foster’s role in the development of the Barlow Road. Bring the teens and your favorite history buff to get a little deeper into Oregon Trail history.
