Plowing & Planting

Historic Yates Mill County Park
Historic Yates Mill County Park Sunday, March 17th 1pm–5pm. For all ages; FREE. Registration is not required.

For almost 200 years, farmers brought their wheat and corn to what is now Yates Mill to have their grains ground into flour and meal. Today, you can stop by the Yates Mill visitor center to see a tabletop display about what tasks 19th-century farmers and their families would be doing each month as part of their life on a farm. In March, learn how farmers plowed the fields and planted crops in the 1800s; see sample farm artifacts; and plant a seed in a newspaper pot to take home.
