Join the Volkening Heritage Farm as they guide you through demonstrations on what it meant to preserve meat on an 1880s working farm.

Staff will smoke hams, show salt-cured meat and explain how every part of a pig was used (except the squeal!).  Children’s activities will be available throughout the day.

The program will be held on Sunday, November 20, 2016 from Noon to 4:00 p.m .

Admission is $3/person or $12/per family of six or fewer–additional members are $3 each.  Free for children 3 and under.

Parking will be available at Spring Valley Nature Center at 1111 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg . A free wagon shuttle will take visitors to the farm.

For more information, call (847) 985-2115.
