Students and workers at the Jensen Living Historical Farm are busy preparing the farm for the winter months, much as farm families did during the early 1900s.
"This was a busy time of year for the early residents of Cache Valley," said graduate student Henry Amick.Wintertime preparations at the Jensen Farm may be seen Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during a traditional cider pressing event.
"We are using the apple to demonstrate the importance of putting up food for the winter," Amick said. "We'll be busy in the summer kitchen canning apples and applesauce and apple butter. The highlight of the day will be squeezing apple cider in the hand-cranked press."
The Jensen Living Historical Farm recreates life on a 1917 Cache Valley Farm.
