This July, Sydney Living Museums is hosting Earn Your Tucker, an exciting series of interactive experiences for boys and girls aged 5 and up.

Earn Your Tucker will be held at Rouse Hill House & Farm and Vaucluse House and children aged 5 and up will be invited to help feed the chickens, collect the eggs, grind the grain and make the butter, then sit down to enjoy their well-earned tucker!

 

Earn Your Tucker: Rouse Hill House & Farm

The sun is up and it's time to get the chores done.

The main activities include:

  • Pump the water and grind cereal grains, and then feed it to the chickens before collecting their eggs.

  • Learn how to do the egg test to make sure your egg is fresh.

  • Churn the butter on the verandah, washing off the buttermilk and patting the butter into shape, before taking it home.

    Bookings are essential: Check out the sessions and secure your ticket here: sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/events/earn-your-tucker-rouse-hill-house-farm
