Monday, Sept. 4, 2016, we will have our 23rd annual Labor Day Sorghum Festival. It will be at Brazos de Dios, in Waco, Texas. Admission is free. Hours: 10AM – 5PM
Watch the entire process of making sweet sorghum syrup–from pressing raw cane with a horse-powered mill to cooking the sap into rich, golden brown syrup. Enjoy samples of sorghum syrup on freshly-baked cornbread made from stoneground cornmeal!
Come join us Thanksgiving weekend for our 2016 Homestead Fair! This exposition of fine crafts and heirloom skills is a fun and educational festival with activities for the entire family.
Help milk a cow or lend a hand with the old-fashioned timber frame barn raising! Sample one of the multicultural dishes from the food court or enjoy a delicious ice-cream cone while touring the 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!
