Explore tractors, modern farm vehicles, and the Winterthur fire trucks. Enjoy a hayride, arts and crafts, and more! • Discover 30 tractors and other pieces of estate equipment. • Hop onto one of the original Winterthur farm trucks and see how a modern backhoe and crane work. Feel free to take pictures and ask our knowledgeable staff and volunteers questions. • Learn about the Winterthur Fire Department! • Meet our firefighters and put out a “fire” with our pumper truck. Hop aboard the fire truck and try on real “turnout gear.” • Enjoy a hotdog, pretzels, and ice cream! • Take a hayride through the estate! • Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and changing leaves. • Climb a tree! • Put on a safety harness and climb a tree, just like a real arborist. • Get creative with farm- and tractor-related crafts. • Look for helmets, badges, and coloring book giveaways!
