Erntefest – Harvest Festival at Joseph Schneider Haus
Kitchener’s oldest Mennonite homestead, the Joseph Schneider Haus, celebrates the harvest or “Ernte” with a flurry of activity. For nine days, the seasonal tasks of a Mennonite farming family will be performed as they were in the 1850’s.
Domestic duties such as schnitzing, preserving, pickling and flax processing will prepare the busy household for winter. The bakehouse and drying house will be fired up throughout the week.
