Plenty of activities scheduled for 'Day on the Farm'

Maynard Knepp and Carol Duerksen’s farm northeast of Goessel will be abuzz with activity Saturday during the 14th Day on the Farm.

Activities will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Demonstrations will include pig catching, goat tending, rope making, and use of branding irons.

Children will have a chance to catch a pig or milk a goat, take a horseback ride, or ride in a tractor-pulled wagon. They will be able to pet farm animals, see donkeys and llamas, and climb through a maze of hay bales.

Mennonite Agri-Urban Inc. sponsors Day on the Farm, which is intended to build connections between rural and urban families.

The Duerksen and Knepp farm is at 1582 Falcon Road.
