Fall Harvest Homeschool Day
Thursday, September 28 at 9 AM - 2 PM
Enjoy a hands-on day dedicated to home school students learning about harvest season and everything that comes with it. Harvest season wasn't only about picking crops and stocking the smokehouse. It was also the time to make soap out of fresh lard, candles from bees wax, prep for long winters of firestarting, press fresh apples for ciders, and save herbs for winter dishes.
Learn about, and even try your hand at, these 19th century fall harvesting responsibilities. As always, the plantation home will be open with docents sharing history. The farm and barns will also be open for children to visit with the friendly Latta farm animals including the ever popular sheep and lambs.
The event runs from 10am-2pm with ongoing activities. Can’t get here right at 10? That’s fine, we will welcome folks into the event offering plenty of things to see and do as activities are ongoing throughout the event. Pack a picnic and enjoy at one of our shaded picnic tables. The Merchants Wagon Gift Shop offers a variety of candies, snacks, drinks, colonial games, toys, and books to brows while visiting.
