Learn how to “put up” foods and join in on the food preservation revival.

With today’s modern refrigeration, freezing, and aisle upon aisle of ample foods at the grocery store, we don’t have to worry where our next meal would come from, but our ancestors did. Learn how to “put up” foods and join in on the food preservation revival. We will be drying, pickling, and preparing for storage of vegetables and fruits for the coming year as well as creating our own seed packets for next year’s garden. Limited to 12 attendees, registration required, with a fee of $20 for members and $25 for non-members.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM

Stanley-Whitman House, a National Historic Landmark, is a living history center and museum that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of 17th to 19th-Century Farmington, Connecticut.

Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in Colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, Stanley-Whitman House is centered on a ca. 1720 National Historical Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The museum also manages Village Green (located at the intersection of Rtes. 4 and 10), Memento Mori Cemetery (Farmington’s ancient burial ground on Main Street), and the Scott Swamp Cemetery.

Since 1935, Stanley-Whitman House operates under the auspices of and has been supported in part by the Farmington Village Green and Library Association, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization.
