About the Event
Case-Barlow Farm Hosts Open House for Children and families
Could you have been a farmer when Chauncey and Cleopatra Case and other pioneers came to Hudson, Ohio? You are invited to join others to discover what was necessary to start a farm on Sunday, August 8th from 1-4 pm at the farm located at 1931 Barlow Road in Hudson.
How did the settlers take an empty plot of land and create their own farms? Speakers, beginning at 1:30 pm, will discuss how you would take this newly purchased land, and what you needed to do to become a successful farmer.
Children will hear stories on gardening, field planting and plowing and how to exchange produce and various items between farmers. Learn about the important crops the Ohio farmers needed to plant and harvest. Hudson was an important dairy farming community, hear about the dairy and milking process.
Of course, there will be small farm animals to see and pet!
Children and their parents will then be able to tour the historically preserved farm house, the newly renovated" Big Red" barn and the old carriage barn displaying many of the tools used for farming.
CBF's hand built vegetable cart will have garden produce available to purchase.
