A dreary, rainy day never kept a farmer from tending to his field. Nor does it ruin a day on the Rentschler Farm.
Organizers say the Saline Area Historical Society's Harvest on the Farm event enjoyed solid attendance Sunday at Rentschler Farm Museum.
"We had people asking if we were going to council because of the rain. Well, you'd never see a farmer take the day off because of the rain, so we weren't going to cancel," said Agnes Dikeman, of the historical society. Guests toured the old farmhouse, walked through the gardens, watched demonstrations, visited farm animals, and took in a Saline Area Players music revue in the big barn.
