Get outdoors and celebrate spring during Historic Brattonsville’s “Children’s Day on the Farm”


McCONNELLS, SC - “Children’s Day on the Farm” is a fun, annual family event at Historic Brattonsville that celebrates farm life in the Carolina Piedmont during the 18th and 19th centuries. A team of draft horses will be out plowing in the fields getting ready for spring-time planting. Newborn lambs and other furry farm friends will be welcoming visitors to the 800–acre living history plantation. Hands-on activities include candle-dipping, blacksmithing, and food preparations in the way of the early settlers of the Carolina Backcountry. Children will enjoy toys and games of long ago. Pony and wagon rides will be available for a small fee. Palmetto Blue, an award-winning bluegrass band, will play the traditional music of the Palmetto state. The Plated Pallette will offer food concessions for sale.
