We will kick off Coggeshall’s agriculture season on April 9th and 10th with a showcase of heritage breed livestock, historic gardening, farming practices, and the tools of the trade. Guests will be able to help prepare the garden while learning about our pasture and the animals that would have worked the land alongside their farmers. In the work yard, our blacksmith shop will be up and running during the weekend to connect visitors to the tools that enabled farmers to sustain their crops and animals.
