Holcombe Jimison Farmstead Museum celebrates corn


Visit the Holcombe Jimison Farmstead Museum, 1605 Daniel Bray Highway, Lambertville, N.J., from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15, for some good old fashioned farmstead fun at Corn Fest, celebrating the favorite crop of summer-corn.
Play corn hole, hand-grind corn to feed the chickens, make a corn husk doll, milk a pretend cow, use a rope winder to make a friendship bracelet or even a jump rope. See all the tools of agricultural heritage and learn about the agricultural innovation that originated in New Jersey.
The homestead, the 1711 House, is the oldest deeded home in Hunterdon County, N.J.
N.J. State 4H Dairy bowl members host a concession stand featuring corn on the cob, hot dogs, drinks, chili and other goodies.

Bring a chair or blanket to enjoy the unrepentant honky tonk and western sounds of Moss Henry and the Brophytes who play from 2 to 4 p.m. Visit the International Culinary Herb Garden tended by the Herb Society of America Delaware Valley Unit.
Admission is $5 per person, children 5 and under are free; family membership is available for $25.
