Nash Farm presents Fall Round-Up
Grapevine’s Nash Farm will present the 19th Annual Fall Round-Up, where guests can experience an old-fashioned fair like the city’s earliest settlers.
Attendees will have the opportunity to help Nash Farmhands thresh wheat from this year’s harvest. Threshing is the process of removing the grain from the wheat stocks. A threshing tool called a flail, which consists of a wooden staff with a short heavy stick swinging from it, will be used to hand-thresh the wheat. Once the grain is threshed, it will be milled into flour for use on the Farm.
Guests can also see farm animals, enjoy campfire cooking demonstrations, make apple pie, enjoy old-time music, pick pumpkins from a pumpkin patch, pony rides and more. A historical carnival will also be on the grounds and will include old-fashioned games, bucket brigade races and other competitions. The Farmers Institute, located just outside the Nash Farmhouse, will have demonstrations on wagon styles and travel, wheat harvesting, raising sheep, cattle driving, food preservation and more. Fried fruit pies along with beans and cornbread will be available for purchase.
