Few events in Plantation Country can match the authenticity of Old Farmer’s Day – you’ll see a variety of demonstrations, like a live Hog Butchering, watch farmers, old and young, work the fields the way it used to be done: by real horsepower. There’s also sheep shearing, split rail fence building, and a bevy of kids contests. The gates at Brunett Farms open at 9 a.m., and demonstrations and events begin at 10 a.m.
