Tips on Visiting the Farm

To preserve the historic aspect of the farmstead, many of the original walking surfaces remain. Please take caution while visiting and mind your step. Ladies, you may also want to bring another pair of shoes along with your high heels to slip into once the festivities begin. And lastly, although the barn and other structures will provide protection from the rain and wind, this will be an outdoor event, so please dress accordingly.
