Winterthur was once a model farm that embraced groundbreaking agricultural research and cattle breeding. Join Winterthur Garden guide Debra Shedrick to explore what it was like to run such a farm at the highest levels of American society in the first half of the 20th century— an endeavor that resulted in the development of an award-winning herd of Holstein Freisian cattle that have been said to be the backbone of today’s great milk-producing cattle.
Join us for demonstrations, talks, and guided walks covering a wide range of gardening topics. These events begin at 11:30 am on Wednesdays from April through October (except August). Included with all admission tickets; Members free.
Walks last 45–60 minutes. No reservations necessary. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. Walks are generally not handicap accessible due to rough and steep garden paths.
