Celebrate Harvest at Ulster Folk Museum

Celebrate Harvest at Ulster Folk Museum

Harvest is traditionally a time of year for celebration, for people to give thanks for the crops which have been harvested. It was an extremely important time as it ensured people could store food and eat well throughout the hard winter months. Many of the skills and values of harvest are still relevant today, and the Folk Museum are proud to be keeping them alive.

Join them for their Harvest celebration on Saturday 24th September, where you'll be able to pick apples, dig for potatoes, and watch our traditional demonstrators making butter, preserves, soda bread and cordial.

The Conservation Volunteers will be holding an interactive 'Mash n' Smash' session where you can learn sustainable practices like seed collecting, apple smashing and the history behind our native trees.

Don't forget to look out for the donkeys from the Donkey Breed Society and say hello to all the farm animals!
