A reconstructed revolutionary war farm, Claude Moore Colonial Farm is run with the same tools and methods employed by farmers in the 18th century. The farm demonstrates the life of a poor family living on a small farm in Northern Virginia just prior to the American Revolution. Staff and volunteers, dressed in period clothes, work the farm and answer questions about livestock and life in the 18th century. Kids will learn first-hand from the "real-life" farm family about how they live and work on the farm. Claude Moore also offers special events and festivals, like the Market Fair, where kids can play on a rope swing, watch puppet shows, participate in sack races and bob for apples. The farm is open seasonally April through mid-December from 10am – 4:30pm Wednesday to Sunday.
