Farm Skills Program
This hands on program teaches important farm skills and includes a farm visit. Paid reservations required.

Colonial Living Experience
This weekend overnight program will immerse you in the 18th century. Participants will wear period clothes, cook meals over a fire, sleep in tents and learn 18th century skills. Paid reservations required.

Environmental Living Experience
This program was designed for school and scout groups to have a full immersion in the 18th century. Groups leaders are trained by CMCF staff and then create their own program with the space and some basic tools supplied.

Junior Interpreter Program
The junior interpreter program is designed for children ages 10-17 who think it might be fun to join the “Farm Family”. After an application process, children may dress in period costume and assist the staff with the upkeep of the 18th century farm site as well as learn colonial skills.
