About the event

Step back over 100 years as living history interpreters demonstrate the process of making hay using 19th century machinery propelled by real horsepower. Having enough hay to last through the winter months was a necessity. Prairie hay was cut, cured, raked, and made into haystacks. It was also stored loosely in the loft of the large 1882 limestone barn. Interpreters will be on site to talk about the cultural history of making hay on the property when it was the Spring Hill Farm and Stock Ranch and Benninghoven Ranches. Haying will take place in the field south of the large barn. Learn More
