Von Gras zu Milch (From Grass to Milk) Program

Plan Field Trip

Students will learn how settlers made and used butter and other dairy goods to supply an important part of their diet. Through storytelling and first person interpretation, students meet Nancy Royer, a young woman who lived on this farm in the early 1800s. Nancy helps students step back in time as she questions their strange clothes and travel methods. Students visit the Royer milkhouse, churn cream into butter, and make samples to take home. Instructors dressed in period clothing help students compare and contrast life in the 1800s with modern life today.
