What did farmers 200 years ago do in the busy Winter of February and the Spring thaw of March? Cider was the beverage of the month, during Carnival and Lent, and doughnuts would be eaten as a treat for Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday before the fast of Ash Wednesday. Wood cutting (splitting) and seasoning were conducted in March. The farmer prepared for the spring thaw and planting. Meet at the Ranger Station at 11:00 a.m.
