Jeepers Reapers! we had a great time this past Saturday!

Well once again we had a great turnout for our monthly special event this past Saturday. Visitors were able to help us thresh and winnow wheat; shell, grind, and press tortillas from corn; stuff pillows with corn husks; create bean bracelets; and see the blacksmith, candlemaker, and miller at work!

For your viewing pleasure, here is a video demonstrating the corn sheller and a slideshow of images from the day. You can click on the slideshow to enlarge the images and control the speed. You should be able to enlarge the video as well. We hope to see you here next month!

Be watching the blog within the next couple of weeks for a demo on how to make corn husk dolls as well...
