Join us in using plants from our garden to dye and color fabrics!

Let’s go back to a time when people naturally colored fabrics using flowers, vegetables, and fruits. Stop by and create some of your own personal designs using all natural dyes. Feel free to stay for a tour of our historic house or just to play with some outdoor colonial games and toys. Family Day is from 11AM to 3PM, with the natural dyes activity beginning at 1PM.  

What to expect on your visit:
– Farmhouse Family Day is free and open to all ages, ideal for children ages 4-10.
– The natural dyeing activity will begin at 1PM.
– Farm activities (i.e. harvesting, weeding) are limited, first-come first-served basis beginning at 12PM. Make sure to wear close-toed shoes and prepare to get dirty.

Other things to do while you are here:
– Drop off food scraps for compost.

We respectfully ask that all visitors (over the age of 2 years) adhere to mask wearing and social distancing requirements while visiting the museum. Following these protocols will also help protect those who are unvaccinated, including families who visit with young children.
