History Lessons and Cool Experiences Offered FREE at 3 Kenton Farms
Boy, are you in for a treat on Saturday - especially if you like the rustic and rural, local history, and FREE stuff!
"Today's Heritage Farm Tour" returns on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., offering a free look at three Kenton County farms as well as a great dose of local history, artisan products, and an up close and personal look at modern rural life.
There are three stops in Morning View, each looking at different eras. The Heritage Area (15168 Decoursey Pike) will focus on 1780 and will feature historical reenactors and period tradesmen that will create an environment that looks like the one frontiersmen like Simon Kenton knew.
The century between 1870 and 1970 will be the focus at the Goshen Christian Church/School & Cemetery (1773 Bracht-Piner Road) and will feature the original log structure from 1870 that replaced the first building on the site when it was donated by Ezra Fish. There will be antique tractors and farm machinery, handcrafted artisan items for sale, and food & drinks to buy.
At Free Radical Ranch (1103 Bracht-Piner Road) you'll meet local farmers who are establishing a new heritage of Kentucky farming. There will be humanely raised lamb, beef, and pork, as well as organically grown produce and plants, suri alpaca and mohair fiber and products, farm fresh eggs, handmade goat milk soap, cheese, and crafts.
Oh, and lots of farm babies!
One of the organizers - Bill Schneider - talked to RCN's Michael Monks about life in south Kenton County and the tour. You can listen to that below, and get more info on the tour's Facebook page!
