The plow day will be held rain or shine. Rain may inhibit the plow teams, but the exhibits, demonstrations, arts and crafts will be in the barns.
Homeplace showcases team plowing and history at Spring Festval
The horse and mule plow teams are returning to Homeplace April 22 as the main attraction for the plow day and spring festival at the farm. Last year’s plow day brought hundreds of families to the farm for the wide-ranging activities. The activities begin at 9:00 and end at 5:00 Eastern Time.
This will be the second plow day/spring festival at the farm. Last year was such a resounding success that the board agreed to make it an annual even even before the 12 horse and mule teams loaded up and left the farm.
The day includes not only an opportunity to see the plow teams in action, it is also a day of demonstrations, exhibits, arts and crafts vendors, food and live music with at least 23 exhibitors and demonstrators, 15 arts and crafts sellers, four music groups andm six food vendors.
There’s always room for more, and if you would like to exhibit or demonstrate an early American craft or sell your art work or craft, let us know on our Facebook page at Homeplace on Green River KY. Or you can call us at (270) 789-0006 and leave a message. (4-4-17)
Put Saturday, April 22, 2017 on your calendar for the Homeplace 2017 Plow Day and Spring Festival. The activities begin at 9 and close at 5 Eastern Time.
