Weald & Downland Living Museum

Historic Life Weekend: Harvest

Join us at the Museum on this special weekend to enjoy seasonal demonstrations focusing on the harvest

Saturday 3rd August – Sunday 4th August 2019

Over the course of this weekend you can find out about the harvesting season, starting from June until the Autumn. Find out more about the time of the year that different produce is ready and the farming year in the past. Also we’ll look at different ways the harvest was brought in, mechanical and by hand. Following on from this, we’ll explore how the harvest could be preserved for winter months. Join informal 10 minute talks and chat to the demonstrators about their work. We continue this story later in the year at our Autumn & Countryside Show.
