Save The Date – Case-Barlow Farm’s Annual Fall Harvest Fest

Mark your calendar and count the days until Sunday September 17th.  Case-Barlow Farm’s Annual Fall Harvest Fest is returning with exciting new items and favorites from the past.  Rain or shine from 12 noon to 5 pm you will find happiness around every corner.  The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad will transform the barn into a model railroad station with working trains and hands on activities.    Joe Leonard, a creative wood carver, will be demonstrating techniques for creating animals from wood.  Of course, real animals from alpacas to goats, chickens to bunny rabbits, will be hoping to be held and petted.  It would not be a fall fest without our hay wagon rides.  A Civil War encampment, including Hudson students, will take you back in time.  The day will also include a blacksmith, Windsor chair maker, stone mason, arborists and so much more. The sounds of the Eddy Street Geezers band will entertain throughout the day and making a guest appearance will be the Buckeye Square Dancers.  Games and crafts including candle dipping will not want to be missed.   Inside the 1800’s historic home, artisans will be demonstrating how to make a quilt, a penny rug, lace making, loom weaving and 1800’s domestic chores.  Of course, CBF’s hot dogs, popcorn, ice cones, root beer and root beer floats will be available when hunger strikes.  Put away your electronic games, and plan for the whole day of great outdoor family fun at 1931 Barlow Road, Hudson, Oh!

Both workshops will take place at Case-Barlow Farm, 1931 Barlow Road in Hudson.

Dress for the weather.  Children are welcome accompanied by an adult.

Sheryl Sheatzley will follow telling of her father-in-law, John R. Sheatzley, who grew up in Canton, Oh., being one of 10 children.  John was 26 years old when he entered the service as a Technical Sergeant in the 4th Armored Division, 3rd Army, where he rode under General Patton.  He was the recipient of the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. John entered combat at Utah Beach in July 1944, his unit fought their way across Normandy, Northern France, all the way through Central Europe.  He was with Patton at the Battle of the Bulge, marching 150 miles in 19 days.  Open discussion will follow both presentations.
