Wellington Farm USA
Saturday, June 26 is Sticky buns Day at Wellington Farm USA. Sticky Buns Day has been going on at the60-acre living history farm for 24 years. The first one was held in September of 1998. Since that time, Sticky Buns Day has become an annual event that is looked forward to by a great many people. On Sticky Buns Day, the Summer Kitchen is in full throttle. The flour is ground in the Grist Mill, the yeast is captured on the front porch and the combination of everything is baked in the oven of the wood fired cook stove. In addition, the entire historic park will be open for the enjoyment of all visitors. Many of the major exhibit buildings will have interpreters inside to relate the history of the Great Depression and demonstrate some of the crafts and equipment.
With special consideration for the health and safety for everyone, those people attending Sticky Buns Day will be given a time to enter the park. This is to maintain the social distancing that is recommended. Face masks will be encouraged for those who feel more comfortable when entering any building. Visitors can easily spend the greater part of a day in order to see and experience everything. Wellington Farm USA depicts life as it was lived in a rural, Midwestern farming community during the Great Depression, more specifically the year 1932 .
Needless to say, the Corona Virus has caused many changes to be made at the living history farm near Grayling. Wellington Farm USA apologizes for any inconvenience the changes in programming may have caused. Do to the fact that that farm has, as of yet, not been able to hire enough help or enlist enough volunteers to man all of the more than a dozen primary buildings. The buildings will be open and as much as possible, historical information will be provided in written form. It will not be the same as hearing it from a costumed interpreter. As soon as help can be acquired, the buildings will be fully staffed.
Wellington Farm, USA is located at 6944 S. Military Road southwest of Grayling. The farm is easily accessed from either Exit 251 of I-75 or Exit 206 of US-127. Beginning June 23 the living history park will be open Wednesday thru Saturday from 9 to 5 and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
