Chuckwagon Cookoff/Sorghum Saturday
Posted on Monday September 19, 2022
We always look forward to harvesting the sorghum and boiling it down to make molasses at the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop. Wear your work boots and jeans because you have the chance to get in the fields with the Mahaffie staff and volunteers during this event. Help cut stalks of sorghum, feed the stalks through a press to make sap, and haul the sap to the outdoor fire to be boiled into molasses.
While you're on the farm, take a tour of
the historic home, see Mrs. Mahaffie's cookstove in action, meet the
heritage breed farm animals, and learn a bit about blacksmithing, too.
Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults, $7 for
kids ages 5 to 11 and free for kids ages 4 & under. Olathe residents
receive $2 off admission. Mahaffie members are free.
