Harvest Day activities return to the Dudley Farm Museum in Guilford

GUILFORD – Harvest Day activities will return to the grounds of the Dudley Farm Museum later this month.

The event will take place on October 30 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2351 Durham Road.

After being canceled in 2020, the Dudley Foundation has resumed this day of activities, which for kids will include a variety of 19th century games, from make-up by “Z” Art of Madison, a pumpkin painting activity, throwing games and a play box filled with corn kernels and toys, according to a press release.

Children will also be able to participate and learn about laundering, a central feature in colonial times on the farm, the organization said. The museum’s antique tractor will be on display for photos and exploration.

There will be a variety of demonstrations including learning the basics of corn forging, ginning and crushing done by old farm equipment, making popcorn and sauerkraut.

Farm animals include sheep, chickens and two visiting donkeys. After the corn grinding demonstration, the children can give the finished product to the chickens.

There will be a lace-making demonstration on the museum porch, with music and the weekly farmers market, with items to buy as well as several demonstrations by vendors.

Visits to the museum and the Amerindian museum will also be organized.
