Florida State Parks – Dudley Farm

Grasping the handle, I watched corn kernels fall into the grinder as I turned the crank, the flaky pieces collecting in a metal basin. A volunteer at Dudley Farm – dressed in a 19th century dress and bonnet – looked on as I created a small pile of chicken feed. Pouring a mini-mountain into my hand, she pointed the way to a chicken coop across a grassy lawn. Bending down, my husband and I threw food to the black and white fowl, laughing as they gobbled up the corn. Thanks to this unique park, we had performed an activity the same exact way a farmer would have in the 1800’s!
