Old time wheat harvesting

by Sean Senti

Sundays in July, Ardenwood visitors of all ages will want to take advantage of the Wheat Harvesting events scheduled from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. where you can follow a wheat berry's journey from the field to your table. Guests can lend a hand bringing in the sheaves and working with an amazing, antique mechanical threshing machine. The wheat will then be milled into wholesome, stone-ground flour. Finally, there will be a tasty, whole-wheat treat fresh from the oven.

For more information, please contact Ardenwood Historic Farm at (510) 796-0199 or visit our website at

General Admission: Adults, $5, Seniors, $4, Kids, $3.50, Under 4, free
Parking is free.
