When I first heard about Plow Day years ago, I, like many Mainers coming off a brutal winter, was thinking of snow plows and wondering why there would be a day for those plows in the spring. Didn't we see enough of them over the winter?

When I smartened up a bit I realized there are more than just one kind of plow here in Maine. This event is for the old school way of plowing fields....duh!

This Saturday is Plow Day at Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth. From noon to 3 you can watch demonstrations of how things used to be on the farm with  horse drawn plowing demos, blacksmith and carpentry displays and demonstrations, organic seeds sale, even dog tricks, wagon rides and a meet & greet with an Icelandic horse!  Lots of fun and activities for the kids.

This is a free event, wagon rides are only $5
