Weekend of farm fun!
Took a trek over to a small town about 45 minutes from me this past weekend to their annual Fall Fest. Had a blast! This Fest concentrates on old farm equipment,steam engines and the old way of doing things. Got to watch them make apple cider,apple butter,saw logs,bale hay,make ice cream,woodwork and various other activities all without using electicity! Horse drawn machines,steam engines and just plain hard work makes you realize just how hard things were back then before you could just flip a switch and turn something on! They also had a huge flea market,saw some Fiesta but nothing I wanted. I was a bit disappointed they wouldn't let me on the Barrels of Fun kiddie ride!
