On July 3rd and 4th, enjoy a picnic at the farm and celebrate our nation's birthday by hearing the Declaration of Independence and witnessing the crowd’s reaction. Watch the colonials make a demonstration against the king by burning him in effigy. See the loyalist reaction to this treasonous act. You are also welcome to show your loyalty by signing the Declaration. Other activities at the farm include hearth cooking, textile demonstrations, long rifle, garden and animal talks. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic basket lunch, a comfortable chair or blanket and enjoy the Fourth as it was celebrated years ago on a true colonial farm in Chester County.
