Amazing Agriculture: Past and Present

Join us at the History Workshop and “dig in” to some fascinating activities as you explore the rich heritage of agriculture in Deerfield.  The deep, fertile soil of the Connecticut River Valley has nourished crops for thousands of years making it possible for Indigenous people, European settlers and contemporary farmers to thrive on the land.  Work in our family garden where we grow broom corn for making brooms and flax for spinning.  Learn about and use real farm tools of the past, take a peat pot of seeds home with you, and on special days, meet some gentle farm animals.
