Longstreet Farm is an 1890's working farm with costumed interpreters. It's open all-year round and it includes a main house which can be toured a Dutch barn and outbuildings.
Some of the Buildings
The Main House
The kitchen is attached to the main house but separate has its own doors (I guess that kept the main house cool). The day we were there, one of the costumed interpreters was baking dessert (I think she said they were cream puffs). She was using milk from one of the cows they have on the farm. I asked if they sold any of the milk and she said it wasn't pasteurized and the regulations make it very difficult to sell raw milk. However, they do make cheese out of it.
While we were there the museum guides were playing different period games with the children. We saw tug-of-war, a potato race and of course, a rope swing. The kids looked like they were having a good time.
Because this is a living farm, Longstreet Farm has some animals. In fact, one of the main attractions was when they milked the cows at 3 o'clock.
Look carefully for the peacock that was up in the rafters of the barn.
Here one of the cows being led back to the barn for milking.
There is a beautiful lake on the farm which you can walk around. It was especially beautiful when we were there because of the lovely flowering trees.
Walking around the lake, we saw the family of turtles sunning themselves.
