Wagon train approaches Stone County Fairgrounds

A wagon train approaches the Stone County Fairgrounds to begin the 2018 Heritage Farm Live event.

Fans of old-timey farming methods and production will have an opportunity to indulge themselves from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Nov. 2 at the Stone County Fairgrounds.

Heritage Farm Live returns for its third event and is expected to be bigger and better than the previous two versions.

“This is going to be a big one, I’m hoping,” said organizer Dick O’Neal.

There will be several features to the event.

A horse and mule pull will take place in the arena, while members of the Choctaw Indian nation will present Native American dancing and crafts.

There will be a working grist mill, antique tractors, Piney Woods cattle, Gulf Coast native sheep and sheep shearing, wool spinning, beekeeping and crafts.

“It’s reliving the past with the older people and educational for the younger generations,” O’Neal said. “Everything there will be grown, raised, crafted or made.”

There will also be mutton-busting event, a hay ride and a petting zoo for the little ones.

Musical entertainment will be provided by award-winning banjo picker Bobby Hathorn of Ellisville.

“Anyone interested in setting up a display or vendor booth can call 601-928-2696,” O’Neal said. “All vendors have to meet the criteria of the event.”

Admission is $5 and children under 12 will be admitted free.
