Kline Creek Farm

Last week went to Kline Creek Farm with some other homeschooling families.  It's a living history farm set in the 1890's. It's a working farm with volunteers throughout doing period themed chores.  They had some the best volunteers I've ever seen; they were enthusiastic and engaging. You could tell that they were really passionate about their work and the farm. Despite us having multiple age levels they were able to interact in a meaningful with the kids . 

We toured lots of original and reproduction buildings and got to watch a couple demonstrations on cooking, blacksmithing, carpentry, etc. The highlight, though, was probably the hands-on-activities. They had a large yard where children could try out period games like Graces and hoop rolling. You can also help with seasonal chores, we picked seed corn and helped stack straw bales.
