Old Fashioned Farm Festival at Babcock Cobblestone House

      Farmer     Don’t miss Somerset’s Old Fashioned Farm Festival  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Babcock Cobblestone House and farm. Sponsored by the Town Of Somerset Historical Society, the annual Farm Festival is a trip back in time and a delight for young and old and with the move to fall, visitors will find volunteers plowing with draught horses and harvesting feed corn. Corn stalks for fall decorating may be available for purchase.

         Horse 1   Horse and tractor-drawn hayrides will run continuously.  The beautifully restored cobblestone house will be open for tours, with historical society volunteers showing how residents cooked, heated their homes and lived over 150 years ago. Artisans and crafters throughout the grounds will demonstrate quilting, broom making, spinning with wool and dog hair, chair rushing and caning, basket weaving, rope making, a knitting machine and blacksmithing. Some have handcrafted goods for sale. Do-it-yourselfers will marvel at the wood shop and see a large antique Adirondack lumber planer on display. Antique cars, tractors and engines will be on display, some with demonstrations.

 The Barker Community Band will perform from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages will be available throughout the day and the Barker Lions will serve their famous chicken barbecue beginning at 11 a.m. This is a rain or shine event for the whole family. For more information on the event, contact current society president Scott Schotz at 795-9577.Antique 1
