At Fosterfields Living Historical Farm on Sept. 18
Wagon Rides. Food Trucks. Farm Animals. Live Music. Hands-on Activities & demonstrations. All will be part of a spectacular 1920s Country Fair and Harvest Festival to be held this Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m. at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.
Join the hundreds of visitors who come each year to experience day of good ole fashioned fun; take a wagon ride around the farm, sway to the sounds of live music, learn the steps of the Charleston, meet and greet all the animals, and enjoy a feast of options at New Jersey’s select food trucks.
The kids will love a visit to the farm yard to see the huge draft horses, Jersey cows, chickens, sheep, ducks, turkeys, and pigs.
Take part in interactive activities throughout the farm, lend a hand churning butter and pressing apples into cider. Help the farmers process corn using a gasoline engine, and then, try your hand at some old time games. See a sidesaddle rider, milk the wooden cow, and watch a blacksmith perform his craft.
Visit the historic homes at Fosterfields. Compare the authentic 1920s Farmhouse where the farm foreman and family once lived, to the 1854 Gothic Revival-style mansion, The Willows, where the Foster family, the previous owners of Fosterfields, used to reside. See what’s cooking in the Farmhouse and what daily chores are being completed.
At the Visitors Center, view an array of antique tools, hand crafts, and vegetable and floral displays. Watch flower arranging demonstrations, and assist a quilters group with their projects.
Don’t forget to stop by the food trucks for delicious lunch and treat options! Enjoy a smorgasbord of savory and sweet options to satisfy your hunger.
