A fun time was had by all on Saturday, September 15th when the Antiquarians visited Child’s Farm just north of Culver.  There was laughter and friendly competition between the men and women as butter was churned by both parties to see who could make the best looking butter.  The discussions still continues on that subject but all agreed that the meal was delicious.  A table setting of blue willow and assorted pottery was beautifully displayed on the outdoor picnic tables surrounded by the newly planted orchard.  Homemade egg noodles were made for the beef cooking in an old fashion pot over the open fire.  The beef and noodles were served with  maple glazed carrots, dill green beans, and cornbread with the freshly churned butter.  Sweets rounded out the meal consisting of rose cup cake and hard gingerbread.  To complete our experience of 1850’s life on the farm, a weaving demonstration  was given by Sue Child along with wool carding and spinning of of the wool.  To make the perfect fall day complete, a hayride was enjoyed by all.
