Come to Renfrew for hands-on historic adventures this season!

Terrific Tuesdays return to Renfrew Museum and Park! Re-imagined as a more in-depth experience designed for elementary and middle school-age children, this popular program for families is being offered as a four-part series in 2022.

Learn about life on our historic Pennsylvania German farmstead by visiting four of Renfrew’s historic features: Pennsylvania German Foursquare Gardens, Milk House, Summer Kitchen, and Fahnestock Farm. Students will participate in an immersive farmstead adventure with special activities inspired by the authentic stories found in our collections, buildings, and landscapes. Families may choose to attend one, some, or register for all four farmstead adventures.

June 28: Dairying

Milk was an essential part of Pennsylvania German families’ diets in the nineteenth century. Join Renfrew’s farmers as we learn about historic dairy processing. We’ll “milk” Renfrew’s faux cows,  practice important tasks like straining and skimming, and visit the Royer Milk House to see how farm families like the Royer and Fahnestocks kept dairy products cool without refrigeration! We’ll end our adventure by going through the entire process of churning cream into butter from working the dasher to draining the buttermilk, rinsing, salting , and molding the butter into pats to try*.

(*Not recommended for those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies.)
