Daily work often took people away from
the farmyard to pastures and woodlots.
· In spring, summer, and fall farmers and their children
drove animals to and from pasture.
· In warmer months farmers made and mended fences
and cleared brush from the pasture.
· In winter they harvested trees from their woodlot.
· In summer and fall people of all ages
gathered wild fruit and nuts.
