Visitors can experience a bit of farm life from the past and today and enjoy a little family time as summer comes to a close at The Conservation Foundation’s Dickson-Murst Day at the Farm on Sunday, August 18th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Montgomery. Admission and parking are FREE!
Vintage farm equipment, such as corn shellers, cob grinders, and a Port Huron Steam Engine running the 1909 threshing machine used to separate seeds from the stalks and husks, will be demonstrated to show how these labor-intensive farming methods were used. Antique tractors and cars also will be on display. The Sandwich Early Day Engine Club will have a display of hit-and-miss engines running, and the original line shaft of the farm will be in operation as well as a horse-powered lift and rock crusher.
