Come help bring in the harvest and learn about the processes involved in turning bast fibers into cloth at Smokey House. Our textile flax and fiber hemp crops are being grown on our main campus research field. Look for processing demonstrations and hands-on opportunities to try hand processing equipment in the natural fibers lab, located near the farmstand.

No cost and no registration required.
