The Farmhouse Frolic is a time for anyone to come and visit the farm. All are welcome and encouraged to come. Bring your family and friends to experience this early 20th century farm. This is a great opportunity to visit Hillside Homestead and have fun doing it! Visit www.hillsidehomestead.com or www.facebook.com/hillsidehomestead for more info!

Activities at the Farmhouse Frolic will include:

  • Historic cooking demos and tastings in the kitchen focusing on food in season, eggs and early vegetables.
  • Tour the farmhouse and the grounds
  • Waxing eggs for winter storage and a discussion on historic methods of preserving eggs. Learn about raising chickens on a small farm
  • See the farm animals: pigs, chickens, chicks and ducklings and perhaps the itinerant goose, Gypsy, will even appear!
  • Games for all ages
  • Or just enjoy some porch sitting with your friends and relax!
