Farming Fun

Published on September 2, 2006

My dad and I attended Old Fashioned Farmers’ Day today, as we do every Labor Day. As always, it was a real blast, and I’ve put up a substantial photo album of our trip. For those who may not know, Old Fashioned Farmers’ Day is an event held in Silk Hope, North Carolina, every Labor Day weekend. It is sponsored by the Ruritans of Silk Hope, and provides a glimpse of the way farming was done in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Steam engines, old tractors, a working saw-mill, classic cars, hit-and-miss engines, and more make up the event. And let’s not forget the oh-so-awesome homemade ice cream, churned via a steam powered engine! I highly recommend the event for people in the central North Carolina area. Highly enjoyable.
