The Agricultural History Project Center and Museum features Yesterday's Farm, an event held during the annual Santa Cruz County Fair, Tuesday September 10 to Sunday September 15, 10am-10pm, and includes our September Second Saturday on the Farm! Yesterday's Farm theme this year is Cowboy Boots & Country Roots - Just like the Fair! You'll be able to drive the draft horses at 4 PM every day with Fred Silva's Clydesdales. Every night will have a tractor parade. Claudia's Kitchen will be open, where you can try making bread dough or rolling out a pie crust. We'll have demonstrations of lumber making with a hand saw mill and spinners and weavers will be on-site demonstrating turning a fleece into yarn and weaving cloth. Kids will be able to pump water, milk 'cows,' ride tractors, roll hoops, and have fun petting the animals. Tractors, trucks, and wagons will be on display as well as a new tractor barn theater showing videos of antique tractors and how they were used. There will be chickens, sheep, and possibly a cow and calves. We'll have daily demonstrations of equipment restoration and antique equipment use. Kids are free on Wednesday. Entrance is with a Fair ticket through the main Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds gate.
