29th Annual Fall Farm Fun Fest

The Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest was held September 26-28, 2019 at the host farm of Wayne and Bradley Beidel of Newburg, PA. CVAEMA once again sponsored the “Grinder Winder”, a learning station on the walking tour which consisted of 15 hand corn shellers provided by Bill Swailes.

Approximately 2,400 fourth graders passed through on Thursday and Friday, each able to hand grind an ear of corn after hearing an informative speech by Dale Happel. Dale interacted with the kids talking about corn and the products made from it.

Saturday it was open to the public and was another busy day. Good weather, help from Vo-Ag students, and help from club members helped to make this 29th annual event a success.

28th Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest

The 28th Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest hosted by Robert Musser and his daughter Faith at the Musser Farm on Pinola Road, Shippensburg in September 2018.

The Cumberland Valley Antique Engine and Machinery Association had a learning station “Grinder Winder”. Dale Happel gave a presentation to each group explaining corn must be removed from the cob for the grain to be used for human food and products made with corn.

Bill Swailes brought his hand corn shellers which provided the children a hands-on demonstration, as each child and adult got to shell their own ear of corn under the watchful eye of volunteers from the club.

The corn was furnished by Franklin Feed.
