Living History Farms, Urbandale, IA

Nothing is a constant in history like food. During the events on these two days, explore in a fun way how food and nutrition have been a constant in history, from too little food to too much. Discover the impact that changes in technology had on how people produced, prepared, and preserved food that they ate. Learn how technology changed the tasks people did. How many calories do you burn off playing checkers vs. printing with a foot-powered press? How much horsepower does your body generate, compared to a tractor or car? How long does it take to turn cream into butter, or to cook in an open hearth vs. a microwave?

* Pre-registration required; pre-registration for each day is limited to the first 500 people
