Greetings on this October 1st! 🎃🍂

Spooky season has arrived, and Hermann Farm is thrilled to join in on the festivities by sharing some historical insights about this holiday.

Halloween traces its origins back over 2,000 years to the ancient Celtic Festival of Samhain. On what we now know as October 31st, the Samhain community would come together to wear costumes and ignite bonfires, aiming to ward off malevolent spirits as they ushered in the new year on November 1st. 👻

During the 1800s, immigrants from this community continued their traditions in America. Overtime, these traditions proved to be more of tricks resulting in children placing farmers' wagons and livestock on barn roofs, tipping over outhouses and uprooting gardens.

Eventually, Halloween evolved into a holiday focused on uniting the community and indulging in an abundance of sweets rather than playing pranks!🍭

Stay tuned throughout this month for additional eerie insights into this cherished holiday!

Did you know that butter molds were used as a marketing tactic by dairy farmers?🧈🐄

Butter molds date back to the mid-18th century. As a way of brand identity, dairy farms would use differing molds to set their products apart from their competitors. These designs helped consumers identify the farm where the butter was produced. Similar to our modern day brands! In turn, butter molds became intricate works of art which are widely collected today.

We were so happy to have hosted a tour for several members of the Missouri Arts Council this past weekend!

Hermann Farm is focused on supporting the arts and cultural education, and most recently hosted multiple artists for the Hermann Plein Air. We were also able to show the council where the annual Shakespeare Festival will take place here on the Farm on August 26th.

We extend our thanks to the Missouri Arts Council for presenting us with this beautiful poster for Hermann Farm’s support of the arts, which helped Hermann be recognized as the 2023 Missouri Creative Community.

If you missed the cultivating demonstration today, you have another chance tomorrow, May 31st.

We can’t let the weeds get ahead of the corn (see picture) and we have to get it done early in the day when it is cooler for the horses.

We will be using two separate teams so that we can get the job done without overworking the horses. Starting at 8:30 AM until it is completed.

Demonstration is open to the public and the Farm can be accessed using the Reserve Street entrance and follow signs to top of Hill.

Cultivation will be taking place again here at the farm Tuesday May 30th from 8:30-11:30AM. These live demonstrations are open to the public and the Farm can be accessed using Hermann Farm Road, via the east gate off Hwy. 100 towards Hermann Farm Distillery.

Don't miss out on your chance to see these horses in their element, and experience history in the making here at Hermann Farm.

Cultivation aids in eliminating weeds between the corn so there is no competition for water, space and sunlight.

We hope to see you!!!

The corn is coming along, and the horses are ready to get back to doing what they do best!

The farm will be giving live demonstrations tomorrow, May 26th from 11AM-3PM. These demonstrations are open to the public and the Farm can be accessed using the Reserve Street entrance.

To ensure a plentiful crop, two of our draft horses will be using a one row McCormick Deering cultivator manufactured between 1910-1930 to cultivate.

Cultivation aids in eliminating weeds between the corn so there is no competition for water, space and sunlight.

We hope to see you!!
