The 2019 theme was “Food Industry…Past and Present” and we educated students on both food preservation and preparation. The Thumb Octagon Barn partnered with Knowlton’s Ice Museum and showed students old harvesting and storage methods. Also, preservation of food using various techniques, including salting, smoking, canning, and drying fruits were explored.
The 2019 School Tours educational field trip for students from pre-school through 8th grade was held on Wednesday, May 8th, Thursday, May 9th, and Friday, May 10th at the Thumb Octagon Barn, Gagetown. We thank our volunteers and all of the parents, students and educators who came out and made this years School Tours a success!
