Experience family-friendly fun on the farm April 20 at the 12th Annual Spring Into Nash.

The 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. free event offers activities including heritage toys, kitchen gardening, cotton planting, farm animals, tractor-drawn wagon rides, field cultivation, wood carving demonstrations, jump rope making, wood-burning stove cooking demonstrations and blacksmith demonstrations.

The farm shows what life was like when the city’s earliest settlers made their home in Grapevine.

Coupons can be purchased for those activities that require a fee. The farm is located at 626 Ball St.

Nash Farm is the oldest operating farmstead in Tarrant County. It aims to educate about the history and importance of the Grape Vine Prairie and Grapevine’s role in the development of North Texas.

The 12th Annual Spring Into Nash is great way to learn what life was like for the earliest settlers to North Texas, Jim Lauderdale, Nash Farm manager, said of the event.

Persons interested in becoming a part of Grapevine’s rich agricultural history can join the Grapevine Heritage Foundation. Membership tables will be on-site at Spring Into Nash. Volunteer opportunities at Nash Farm are available through the Nash Farmhand program and information will be available at the membership tables during the event.

For information, call the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau at 817-410-3185 or visit
