Kilts Farm - dedicated to agriculture and history

Kilts Farm Open House

May 13, 2023 from 10am to 4pm

Come and have a tour.  This is your opportunity to see the historic house and the Dutch Barn containing the amazing Skip Barshied collection.  We'll have something for the whole family!  Come and pet the baby goats and lambs.  There will be an exhibit on American lighting through the ages from rush lights to kerosene lanterns.  There will be demonstrations of blacksmithing, tinsmithing, historic window repair, basketweaving, 4H exhibitions and an opportunity to sign up for 2023 summer workshops.  There is no charge for attending but donations are always appreciated.
