Unplug from the 21st century and return to a simpler time at Maine’s oldest living history farm in Livermore. Spend 24 hours as part of a farm family in the year 1870. Experience an overnight introduction to the activities of sustainable rural living in both historical and contemporary times. The program takes place April 25-26, 2014. The deadline to register is April 11th. Space is limited.
Imagine waking up and it is five years since the end of the Civil War. You are on the farm and the chores are waiting. The woodstove needs to be lit, water needs to be brought in, the oxen need tending, and eggs need to be collected. All around you, there is a bustle of activity as your 19th-century family begins the day with you.
