Fall On The Farm At Sauder Village




Visitors to Sauder Village this weekend have a chance to participate in hands-on activities with a fall theme, as the village holds its annual Fall on the Farm event, Saturday, Oct. 13.

Kim Krieger, director of marketing, said the village’s Farm Days focus on the changing seasons.

For the fall program, visitors can watch as crops that were planted in the spring are harvested and canned or preserved for winter use.

Hands-on activities for young and old alike include drying and packing apples, shelling corn, and pressing cider. Visitors also can help make noodles, butter, and soap over an open fire. Youngsters can play old-fashioned games, make cornhusk dolls, and participate in a spelling bee.

There is a harvest home church service, which celebrates the year’s harvest.

The village’s final event is the annual Woodcarvers Show & Sale, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28.
