As an annual tradition, Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm (established in 1792) celebrates its agricultural heritage by hosting Mule Day at the Farm on May 4, 2013. Visitors can see displays of traditional farm equipment and animals as well as demonstrations of period crafts by local artisans (including soap making, basket making, blacksmithing, and milling grits and cornmeal) as well as traditional farming techniques.
More than 15 buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and will be open for visitors. Whole hog BBQ will be served, and tickets include admission to the farm as well as a BBQ plate (with brunswick stew and chips) and a beverage. Fried pies and other goodies will be for sale.
