As the weather turns cool and we think of long winter days, it’s easy to plan trips to the grocery store for food needed for on meals on those cold nights. That was not always possible. Grocery stores were not readily available and currently not as well-stocked.
Most of the food for the winter had to be grown and preserved the previous summer. Drying, pickling and putting vegetables and fruit in the cool root cellar were common methods of preservation. Meat was fried, packed in lard, and put I the root cellar too.
Come visit the 1910 farm and pioneer farm to learn how to make sauerkraut and slice pumpkins and/or apples to dry. Park at the Visitors Center and walk the trail enjoying the fall wildflowers as you travel.
Regular park admission.
