Wheat Harvesting & Weaving, Howell Living History Farm

Saturday June 26, 2021
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

When last fall’s wheat crop is finally ready to harvest, farmers will need your help in the field to follow behind the horses and gather up sheaves of wheat bundled by the McCormick Reaper-Binder. Next you’ll assemble the sheaves into shocks for drying outside.

What does it take to put new shoes on a 1900-pound workhorse? Find out when farrier Charles Napravnik pays a visit to the barn. After firing up the forge and crafting a new pair of shoes for a team of Belgian horses, the smithy will trim their feet and nail on the new shoes. Throughout the day, visitors can help blacksmith Daniel Lapidow by turning the crank of the forge blower as he makes harness hooks, gate hinges, and other hardware needed on the farm. Initialed horseshoes and other hand-made items will be available for purchase. Masks required. Parking and admission are free.
