We will be attending the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington on June 1 and 2, and we plan to have a booth there. Drop by and visit us if you are in the area.
On Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, we will be having our 19th annual Labor Day Sorghum Festival at Brazos de Dios. The festival will start at 10 A.M. and go until 5 P.M., and admission is free.
Watch the entire process of making sweet sorghum syrup–from pressing the raw cane using a horse-powered mill to cooking the juice into a rich, golden brown syrup. Enjoy some samples of sorghum syrup on freshly-baked cornbread made from stoneground cornmeal!
Come join us Thanksgiving weekend for our Homestead Fair! This exposition of fine crafts and heirloom skills is a fun and educational festival with activities for the entire family. Help to milk a cow, lend a hand at the old-fashioned timber frame barn raising and watch a master craftsman fashion a fine Windsor chair straight from a rough log! Afterwards, sample one of the multicultural dishes from the food court or maybe lick a delicious maple pecan ice-cream cone while touring our farm on a horse-drawn hay wagon.
Browse the daily schedule for a complete list of make-your-own projects and demonstrations—including sheepdog work, horse farming, pottery making, blacksmithing, woodworking, quilting, weaving, spinning, basketry, boot making, cheese making and much, much more… See you at the Fair! (more…)
