EAGLE — Get a glimpse into the past as Old World Wisconsin hosts Fall Fun on the Farms on weekends through Oct. 13.

“As families entered into fall, the kitchens became a haven of herbs, vegetables, grains and meats as farm families preserved their bounty for winter,” Dan Freas, site director at Old World Wisconsin, said in a news release. “Many Wisconsin families still have fond memories of these traditions. We want to help our guests explore and connect to their family stories and traditions through these hands-on events.”

Weekend activities include:

  • Fall Plowing Weekend, through Sunday, Sept. 8
  • Beer Brewing Weekend, Sept. 14-Sept. 15: Guests and homebrewers may help harvest the hops, thresh barley, learn about historic beer-making processes and get ideas for using beer in cooking and baking.
  • Winter Is Coming, Sept. 21-Sept. 22 and Sept. 28-Sept. 29: Activities include how to make sauerkraut, how to pickle and preserve produce and how to pack a root cellar before winter.
  • Butchering Weekend, Oct. 5-Oct. 6: See how livestock was butchered and processed.
  • Apprentice Weekend, Oct. 12-Oct. 13: Try your hand at sausage-making, harvesting the gardens, working in the blacksmith shop or teaching in the schoolhouse.

All activities are included with general admission. Go online to oldworldwisconsin.org for more information.
