Mule Day

If you're looking for something fun to do the first Saturday in May with your friends and family, considering joining us at the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm in Jackson County for Mule Day from 10 - 3. The farm is located at 2355 Ethridge Road, Jefferson.


Admission includes:

-entry to farm buildings, including a working gristmill and blacksmith shop, cotton gin, commissary, and teacher’s house will all be open for touring. These buildings date back to the early 1900s.

-displays of traditional farm equipment and animals as well as demonstrations of period crafts by local artisans, including split oak basket making, soap making, re-enactors, black-smithing, and garden herbs and plants

-blue grass music throughout the day and a plate of whole hog BBQ (served from 11-1)

-seminar by Gene England on mowing, raking, hauling and building a hay stack using mules and horses.  A highlight of the day will be watching these horse drawn mowers, rakes and wagons create the hay stack.  Gene will be available to answer any questions you might have.
