Event Details

Roll up your sleeves and experience life on a colonial-era farmstead!

Wheat & Sheep Day is set for Saturday, April 27 at noon at the Thompson-Neely Farmstead and Grist Mill, part of Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).

At this family-friendly event, watch as the Thompson-Neely sheep are shorn of their wool using period-accurate techniques and tools.

You’ll also learn to make colonial-style pancakes, see how sheep’s fleece was used by colonists for clothing, watch a cooper create barrels, and tour the Thompson-Neely House and the Grist Mill across the street, which were both part of an 18th century farmstead.

Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 5-11, and free for those under 5.

Admission to Bowman’s Hill Tower and a tour of the Historic Village is also included with the purchase of admission to Wheat & Sheep Day.
