Harvest marks the end of the agricultural season, the time when crops are ready for gathering and winter preparations begin.
Celebrate the harvest season with us all through September as we grind corn, pick apples, harvest spuds and pull the flax. Explore our beautiful exhibit buildings decorated for harvest and learn about traditional harvest activities. Our visitor guides will be making potato bread and butter and our craft demonstrators will be busy on harvest activities. Take an autumnal walk through our woods and farmlands as you watch the season turn and the work of harvest unfold.
On weekends during the Harvest season, we have some extra activities taking place:
Saturday 2nd September – Pick apples in the orchard and watch the popular apple smash at The Diamond. There'll also be flax pulling, corn grinding and more to see and do.
Saturday 9th September – Come and help with the spud harvest and give corn grinding a go at one of our farmhouses.
Saturday 16th September – See threshing demonstrations, gather berries and make harvest crafts at the craft station
Saturday 23rd September – The end of harvest is cause for celebration! Join us in McCusker's Pub for a drink and enjoy traditional music and dance, where our Senior Curator of History will be on hand to share her knowledge about the harvest season.
