When the nights were long and cold, having a good light to guide your way was essential. Traditional beeswax candles were a staple on the 1850s farm. Come out and try your hand at dipping a candle and find out how many dips you need to make a candle that you can take home and use at your own homeplace.
Come get a sneak peek at something new on the farm! We’re developing a walking trail with plenty of information about the trees you’ll see in the woods all around the region. Come to enjoy the views, or brush up on your dendrology. Why not both?
