Step back over 100 years in time as living history interpreters and the Kansas Draft Horse and Mule Association members demonstrate the process of making hay using draft horses and 19th century machinery propelled by four teams of draft horses.  Weather permitting, draft horses will mow and rake the hay fields from 10 am to noon, with a short break then return to work from 1 pm – 3:30 pm.
Additionally, interpreters will also demonstrate 19th century techniques of ranch stove cooking from 10 a.m. until noon, while preparing a meal for the ranch hands. See a table spread with typical foods of the day providing plenty of fuel for the hired hands that toil in their hard labor.

Fee: FREE, no reservation or registration required.
