Nash Farm was a real working farm purchased by the Nash family in 1859 in Grapevine, TX. They raised livestock and grew crops. Of the original 110 acre farm, a little over 5 acres remains. It is now owned by the Grapevine Heritage Foundation and serves as a historic part of Grapevine representing the life and times of the rural farmer and days gone by. Several times a year they host free events for the public with lots of fun hands-on activities for adults and children.
We attended one of these public events at Nash Farm last year. We had fun on the hay rides and my children enjoyed sitting on several different tractors.
They played with all of the knobs, buttons, and switches.
What kid doesn’t love knobs, buttons, and switches?
Then we learned about caring for a garden and did some of our own digging in the dirt with the kid-sized gardening tools provided.
We took a break to sit down and enjoy some freshly harvested cantaloupe from the garden while listening to Mr. Bannister tell us about the history of the farm, gardening tips, and answer questions for us.
Spring Into Nash Farm is a great event to share with you family as you learn about farm life and have fun at the same time.
And of course, it’s FREE!
