N: Nash Farm

A2Z-BADGE [2016]

N: Nash Farm, Grapevine, Texas

One of my favorite local museums, Nash Farms in Grapevine Texas, is celebrating their annual spring event today (April 16th), Spring into Nash. The event is from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. General Admission is free.

Guests will enjoy a variety of activities including heritage toys, kitchen gardening, cotton planting, farm animals, tractor-drawn wagon rides, field cultivation, wood carving demonstrations, jump rope making, wood-burning stove cooking demonstrations and blacksmith demonstrations. Children and adults alike will enjoy learning what life was like when Grapevine’s earliest settlers made their home in Grapevine, Texas.

I haven’t been able to attend the Spring event yet, but I was able to go to their Christmas festivities last December. I was impressed with the knowledge and courtesy of the volunteers as they presented the program to numerous groups throughout the day.

Through interpretive programs, events and exhibits, Nash Farm educates the community about the heritage and importance of the Grape Vine Prairie and Grapevine’s pivotal role in the development of North Texas. A variety of programs throughout the year including the 14th Annual Spring Into Nash, First Fridays at the Farm, Farmhouse on the Grape Vine Prairie and the 15th Annual Nash Farm Fall Round-Up offer guests intriguing and unique learning experiences in a historic setting.

Nash Farm is located at 626 Ball St., Grapevine, Texas.
