Farm Fest Sunday September 9, 2018
The 20th annual Case-Barlow Farm Fall Harvest Fest will delight all ages on Sunday, September 9 from 12 noon to 5:00 pm at the historic farm, 1931 Barlow Road in Hudson. Admission fee of $6 per child and $8 per adult covers all the fun.
New this year is the Wood Shop Committee at Laurel Lake who will be demonstrating and interacting with the guests to use and experience old-fashioned hand saws, planes and various tools used on the farm in early days. Also participating will be the 19th Ohio Light Artillery civil war unit along with Sue Wheeler, a civil war musician and vocalist. During the American Civil War, music played a prominent role on both sides of the conflict. Music was a diversion away from the bloodshed and tensions that came with fighting.
Favorites of the past years will return for your enjoyment: they include Ride’em & Rope’em, Hudson Hoppers, Feed the Pig, hay wagon rides, horse rides and many farm animals. Also Birds in Flight Raptor Center will showcase rescued wildlife birds and Herps Alive will be an interactive reptile and amphibian experience not to be missed. Our famous hot dogs, ice cones and root beer floors will be ready for you when the “hungries” arrive.
Farm house tours and demonstrations of old-fashion crafts such as chair canning, seat weaving, bread making, and rug hooking. The quilt show features various patterns and techniques.
Refreshments for purchase include hot dogs, cookies, snacks, and ice cones, drinks and, of course, the famous Case Barlow Farm Root Beer floats.
