    This is the farming opportunity that you have been waiting for! An intensive and immersive fully-hands-on and brains-on workshop with the goal to develop the knowledge and ability to safely conduct plowing at historic sites in a skillful and professional manner. Participants will walk away from this workshop truly understanding how to plow, or refine your plowing with master plowmen at the master training facility: Tillers International.

    Instruction includes:
    • Historical context of the walking moldboard plow.
    • Field readiness and layout.
    • Plow adjustment.
    • Use of draft animals (horses and oxen), tack, and hitching.
    • Proper plowing techniques and correction of problems.
    • The critical importance of skill development and preservation in historically accurate programming. 

    Lodging is in Tiller’s neo-rustic dorm-style rooms onsite with two to four beds per room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and access to the kitchen and dining area. There is no a/c; bring a fan if the weather is hot.
