Animal Frolic at Quiet Valley


 (WBRE/WYOU-TV)      Take a trip back in time to learn about life on a 19th Century Farm.  Eyewitness News Reporter Anja Whitehead takes us to the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm as they get ready for their “Farm Animal Frolic.”

On a Quiet Farm in Hamilton Township, you’ll be transported back in time to the 19th century. Those who work on the farm educate visitors on life in the past.

  “Living history gives us an avenue to bridge those gaps on how to get those things we need for survival,” Said Tiffany Black, Executive Director Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm.

 At the Quiet Valley Living Historical farm, they’re getting ready for their 31st annual Farm Animal Frolic.

At the farm, visitors will have a chance to have a hands-on experience with the farm animals.

  “The farm animals were part of your life. They were part of how you got your food, your dairy, your clothing, your wool,” Noted Black.

 The event gives people the chance to see a number of old-time demonstrations.

  “The spinning wheel makes this much more efficient. I provide the power which makes the shaft go which makes the wheel go which makes the drive band go,” Explained Sue Oiler, Co-Founder of Quite Valley Living Historical Farm.

 They show visitors how to utilize every resource on the farm.

  “We steam the wood and bend it, you see it has a curve to it and we bend the wood and when it cools it stays in that shape and these are the forks that we use on the farm, good for making hay,” Added Gary Oiler, Co-Founder Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm

 A day at Quiet Valley will be fun for everyone says Black, “To get up close and personal with these animals is something they can take home with them and memories they can cherish.”

If you want to see the baby animals — and experience all this farm has to offer. The “farm animal frolic” will be held this Saturday from 10 to 4  and Sunday from 12-4.

  It will be held again on May 25th and 26th.
