At the Freeman Farm, families will learn about 19th-century agriculture practices and tools, as well as learn how they are applicable to today’s farmers and even backyard gardeners.

Patriots' Day at Sturbridge Village

Through military drills and maneuvers, musket demonstrations, and more, the members for the Sturbridge Militia will bring to life the stories of the men who hastened from their farms, homes, and families to march to the aid of those already engaged in the initial battle of the American Revolution against King George’s tyranny. Young visitors are invited to take part, wielding muskets and swords, learning to drill and march in the manner of the boys of ’76. “Muskets” are provided for this ever-popular exercise in leadership, bravery, and derring-do for small patriots. Witness the making of real musket balls in the Blacksmith Shop. Also joining us for the day will be the martial band and the visiting surgeon from the USS Constitution. Cannon demonstrations will be held in the morning and afternoon.

Maple Sugaring at Woodbury Sugar Shed

Not just a demonstration, not just a hobby sized evaporator either, it's the real thing! Producing almost 900 gallons a season of the best sweetener in the world (we maybe a bit biased in that part). It's a simple yet complicated process, like fine wine or cheese it's an art. Stop in for a brief discussion about how maple syrup is produces, the history of maple in New England and it's importance in Colonial times up to present day. Take in the sights and smells of a 4' x 12' wood burning evaporator (the boiling part of the process). Get a sample of syrup and fee free to ask questions you have.Afterwards Bring home some maple syrup, The Farm products, and even a CSA 2019 Share (Details at location) on our sales side of the sugar house. Be sure to double check each week as mother nature may throw us a curve ball, not allowing us to be active in production.
