Fresh From the Farm:
Harvest Time at Alden House
Saturday, September 23,
12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Colonial housewives spent much of the fall getting ready for winter, from harvesting and preserving produce to cheese and butter making. Explore historic New England foodways in this talk at an authentic 18th-century hearthside as you touch, taste, and try early American cuisine and preservation techniques. In addition, visitors will enjoy a colonial textile demonstration of spinning, weaving, and dyeing wool and linen thread.
Fresh from the Farm is included as part of the Alden House tour and includes small bites of popular colonial dishes and hands-on experiences in spinning. It is supported by the Duxbury Cultural Council, a local agency, which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
