Each person (adults too) will get to bend a warm candy cane. We even share the candies that we make right in front of you. Each child will get a goodie bag of candy.
This is a fantastic experience. Hope you will join us. Please bring a jacket because the tour starts outside of their store.

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.”
Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, November 19, 1863.
Experience a sojourn in America’s past, exploring the great conflict that divided state from state and brother from brother. The vast fields and orchards of Riley’s Farm, in concert with our skilled staff of Civil War living historians, help your students and family imagine the contours of Civil War life in a way that motivates ongoing study.
Start the day off with a rousing town meeting in which your group must debate the war then decide whether to secede, join the union or stay neutral. All sides will get a chance to argue their point, as you relive the Maryland State Assembly.
After voting in the Assembly, spend time with Confederate and Union soldiers as they teach you about their home states and the issues they face. The Civil War comes to life as you experience activities such as a regiment drill, a visit to the Surgeons’s infirmary, and perhaps a lesson in 19th century etiquette, along with various other posts.
Once finished with all your camp posts, you will be given a soldier’s ration of lemonade, cornbread, cheese, an apple and dried beef. Along with your hearty meal, our Packing Shed bakery is open for additional food purchases to supplement the ration.
And finally at the end of the day, all your students participate in a large mock battle, reenacting the Battle of Malvern Hill. Fight for your home and land as Southerners, or uphold the Union and fight to keep the country together as a Northerner.
Given the muskets they drill with, all students will be lead into battle by one of our commanding officers.
**You will receive a “ration” as part of the tour, but you may bring your own lunch or order something at the Bakery window before the tour.
If you wish to order their wonderful apple pies https://store.rileysfarm.com/bakery-2/
