Field Trip - Old Iron Days

We went to our first field trip with our Homeschool Co-op. It was an event called Old Iron Days where they show you how things were done before we had all this technology.

We saw food cooked over an open fire and ate a bit too. They gave us a taste of rabbit stew. That is the first time I ate rabbit!



We also saw how they used stoves inside their homes.


We watch them make and tried homemade apple butter ...

 and apple cider.


She shucked, ground, and sifted corn.



She watch them make a corn husk doll.



We saw several different inventions to help women wash clothes. These still took a lot of work!


We also saw what the old bank looked like and what doctors used to wear.



 There was so much  more that we didn't even get to and a few things I didn't photograph. It was a wonderful day! I can't wait to see more next year!
