Plant Thick and Chop Thin at Barrington Farm

April 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - April 21, 2019 @ 4:00 pm CDT

Dr. Jones noted in his journal on April 13, 1854 – “Ridged up balance of cotton ground, planted cotton in the new field.”
Cotton is King! Like most settlers in Texas, Dr. Jones did not grow cotton to make homespun clothes, but rather typically shipped it out of the country (often England) in exchange for cash money. Come help us ridge up and plant Dr. Jones’ cash crop! Contact Ben Baumgartner for more information at 936-878-2214 x246.
