**The Muster Field Farm Museum Board of Directors has decided to cancel Farm Days 2020 due to the health risks associated with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The board would like to thank all of the vendors, volunteers and friends who participated in this difficult decision. We look forward to a safe and reinvigorated Farm Days on August 28 and 29 of 2021.**
The museum's largest event of the year, a two-day celebration of all things agricultural, historical, and farm-related. This event features special exhibits and demonstrations positioned over the farm’s large fields and in its historic buildings.
See haying and threshing, hand hewing of timbers, stonewall building and stone splitting, blacksmithing, and other farm-related skills. Craft demonstrations include spinning, weaving on antique looms, lace making, rug making and much more. Children can make and enjoy homemade ice cream, using ice cut by hand during the Farm’s annual Ice Harvest event, held at nearby KezarLake each January.
Displays of the Farm’s many artifacts will be featured in the Ezekiel Little, Hildredth, and Hardy-Pillsbury Barns, a reminder of farm work and life from days past. Alpacas will be on display on Saturday and working oxen will be on display on Sunday. Antique trucks, cars and tractors are on parade at 3 p.m. each day, and work-saving antique small engines are exhibited. An assortment of vegetables are available at the Farm Stand, and wonderful food is served throughout the day. And don’t miss Muster Field's famous Roast Beef Supper on Saturday from 5-7 p.m.! Tickets for the supper are required: $15 for adults and $5 for children, available by reservation (603-848-4297), or at the Farm Days Information Booth. Breakfast is available on Sunday from 6:30-8:30 am, for $5/plate: pancakes, sausage, juice & coffee.
Farm Days hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
Admission is free for members, and for all children 6 and under; $5 for non-members.
