Virtual Cornshucking Frolic 2020

Horne Creek Farm's annual Cornshucking Frolic has gone virtual for 2020! Browse this page for links to musical entertainment, historic demonstrations, and vendors to bring the spirit of the event into your home.

Pull up a seat to enjoy performances from some of our past musical guests.  Between sets, watch video demonstrations on spinning, grist mill operation, plowing, making sorghum molasses, and more!  Better yet, warm up your stove and oven to make your own apple butter, fried apple pies, and chicken stew using our own recipes!
