Our girls LOVE learning about how other people live(d) and, for years, have visited a Living Historical Farm not too far from us.
I set up a Guided Tour for our Homeschool group and we had an amazing time learning about Farm Life in the late 1800's.
The guided tour provided a historical perspective of the lives of children and their parents in the 1800's. It was wonderful to see the period pieces as well as learn about the responsibilities and chores the children would have had back then. They were seated in the Parlor of the Victorian Farm House.
Simpler times. Ce Ce playing with the wooden toys.
These kept her happy for a long time:)
The Dining room of the Farm House.
They learned about cooking in the kitchen with a wood-burning stove.
Fun times in the barn!
Holding a Goose Egg.
Checking out the baby pigs.
Learning in the Summer Kitchen. They learned about home preserving/canning and also smoking and salt-curing meats.
Had to snap a photo of the outhouse.
Thank the Good Lord for indoor plumbing!
The Smoke house--it smelled so good!
The Canning Cellar. All of the farm employees eat the foods from the farm.
They plant, grow and harvest tons of vegetables and slaughter their own meats.
We had an amazing time!
