Experience a Winter’s Day on the Farm

Experience a Winter’s Day on the Farm

Wagon Rides, Farm Animals, Ice Harvesting, Farm Chores, and More!

On Sunday, February 2, from noon to 4 p.m., join an exciting outdoor, family adventure, and experience traditional farm life as it was in the early 20th century at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.

Climb aboard the open-air, tractor pulled wagon for a memorable ride around the farm, and stop by the barnyard to meet the Jersey cows, horses, sheep, and chickens. Learn the importance of ice harvesting and what special tools were used. Pitch in, and help with daily farm chores, such as sawing and working with wood.

Take a break from the chilly, winter air, and visit the cozy Farmhouse where seasonal foods are cooking on the wood-burning cook   stove. Stop by the Visitors Center to make a family-friendly craft, and check out the Transportation Exhibit to see Charles Foster’s Rockaway carriage and Caroline Foster’s Model ‘T’ Ford and Hupmobile. Be sure to try out all of the interactive displays!
