Hands-on Barn Raising

Children & Adults Barn Raising · Annual Benefit Auction

Come over to the barn-raising site and see the way early Pioneers handcrafted barns from logs felled from the virgin forest using a broadax, adz and handsaw. On Friday and Saturday we'll assemble and raise the wall beams of an eighteenth-century barn!

We will auction off the 2012 Ploughshare Barn, the Fox Creek Barn(demonstration) and the Miniature Barn(demonstration) by sealed bid to the highest bidder*, with all proceeds going to The Ploughshare Institute for Sustainable Culture.

Historic Building Tour

On Friday and Saturday afternoons, join us at 4:30 for a walking tour of seven restored buildings.

Over the years, we have moved these eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings from various parts of the United States and rebuilt them at our farm to preserve the good things of the past for the present and the future.

Thousands who visit the Fair each year enjoy our special music presentations. Join us each afternoon in the music tent as our children play their instruments and sing.
