On December 15th, something very special will happen at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation. Rust, our working steer, will turn 4 years old.  This alone might be a cool reason to party, but at 4 years old a working steer that is fully trained is allowed to be called an Ox. So what’s the big deal?  Well, the Plantation has never trained a bovine from calf to ox. In fact, very few people in the country are left who can train oxen.  This is a BIG DEAL, and to celebrate we want to have a BIG PARTY.  There is fun to be had for all ages, whether you’re a calf or an ox! Your admission goes directly to our Animal Fund, which helps to support Rust and his other animal buddies.  We’ll have a BIG birthday cake, hot cocoa and hot cider.  Visitors will also have a chance to be a teamster and help drive Rust and learn the voice commands we use to work with him. Young visitors can decorate a Rust-shaped cookie, make their own set of horns, and more.

To find the Plantation, please use GPS address 3900 North Sandy Flash Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073.
Admission:  Admission is $8.00 for adults and children ages 4 to 12. Children 3 and under are free, as are members.  Advance tickets are recommended, as space is limited.
