Animal Tour


Animals were an important part of the farm. Animals were raised for meat, eggs, and dairy for the family to use and sell. All members of the family would be involved with taking care of animals. Men would take care of the larger animals, making sure they had all the food, water, and care they need. Women would be in charge of processing the dairy and preserving vegetables and other produce from the garden that they also tended. Children would help in various ways with both parents. Children were responsible for taking care of the smaller animals such as chickens and miniature horses. They would also help with the baby animals that were raised on the farm.
