Draft horses and antique tractors were supposed to plow the fields, but it was too wet, Ross said. However, other chores were being done at the farm, such as rope-making and pie-baking. It was the first-ever spring event at the farm, which Ross said opened as part of the Preservation Parks system in October. (Gazette | Gary Budzak)[/caption]
