Fall Flavor Weekends
September 24-25 & October 1-2, 2016
If you love to eat, you’ll love Greenfield Village’s Fall Flavor Weekends. Come celebrate the glories of traditional American food from farm to table, share in cooking demonstrations and browse the delights at our Saturday Local Roots Farmers Market.

You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy Greenfield Village’s Fall Flavor Weekends. You just have to love to eat. Each weekend, several of our historic homes will host cooking demonstrations. At Firestone Farm, for instance, you’ll learn the secrets of a 19th-century meal of ham noodles, apples and onions with southern cabbage and Irish potatoes. Over at the Susquehanna Plantation, they’ll prepare a crab gumbo, along with sauerkraut baked with apples, ginger biscuits and cherry pudding. If all that food talk gets you hungry, then stop at the Village Store where they’ll be offering free tastings of our Greenfield Village specialty foods. When you’re ready for a break from all that food, wander outside and wonder at the demonstrations of century-old threshing techniques and plowing with steam and horses.

Saturday, October 3rd, is Gleaner Day at The Henry Ford. Gleaner Life Insurance Society will be onsite hosting a food drive to benefit Gleaner Community Food Bank. Donate five nonperishable items and receive a coupon for one free admission to Greenfield Village with the purchase of one admission (offer valid Saturday, October 3rd only).
