Saturday and Sunday 9:00 am thru 5:00 pm
. . . . . Where seventy juried artisans and volunteers demonstrate traditional folkways and skills of the early French-Germans in Missouri. An d visit is the “Osage Trail,” featuring knowledgeable “French Trappers” and Osage Native-American Reinactors-Skills from 1708 thru the 1890′s. Our family-fun festival is an experience and gained knowledge only
once a year–the third weekend in October. View exact location/details on the “Directions” page.
Volunteer sisters help with the beginning stirring of the peeled, cut and quartered apples which were picked two days ago at the local orchard.
Fresh Blueberry Pie . . . . .
baked for only seven minutes! The Bake Oven in its entirety is featured on the “Osage Trail” web page!
In addition, a very rare exhibit is the unique outside QUEBEC CLAY BAKE OVEN constructed by our volunteers from the original 1700′s drawings. Construction took two years!
Apple Pressing in the 1850′s
Pictured above are young volunteers anticipating “filling the hopper” of the 1840′s wooden apple juice press. The apples were just harvested from the local Marthasville Orchard.
Your family and friends will always remember this fun, educational and historic adventure, we guarantee! The children will never even realize they are seeing their Great-Great-Great Grand Papa (Opah) and Great-great-great grand-mama (Oma) struggling so they might give their future generations what they never had!
“Our German Cookbook”
Dating from the late 1700′s thru the late1890′s this Cookbook is a combination of many ancient family memories. The recipe sources are unbelievable, including three treasures discovered in “Oma’s German Music Box,” dated 1842! See further details on “Our Old German Cookbook” page! Danke.
