From churning butter, playing old-fashioned games and pumpkin decorating to creating leaf animal art and helping with fall planting . . . . Fall on the Farm promises to be a wonderful day for families to create special memories at Sauder Village! On Saturday, October 9 a full day of engaging activities will allow guests of all ages to have a blast in the past. October 9 is also Scout Day with reduced admission rates for Boy and Girl Scouts visiting Sauder Village for this annual event.

Throughout the day, guests will be encouraged to try many traditional, hands-on activities. Children will have an opportunity to help cultivate and plant our fields with ground cover, churn butter and make an owl craft at Natives and Newcomers. There will be leaf animal art activities at the Nature Center and guests can try target practicing with bean launchers at the Log School! Other fun activities include pumpkin decorating, and playing games of old and new on the Village Green. There will also be historical food preservation demonstrations and stories shared along the historic timeline.
