Behind the Scenes of “WTFCF” s2, e3-4: The Time Machine

Georgia Museum of Agriculture & Historic Village - Train

There are so many fascinating things to do, see, learn, and experience at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture & Historic Village that Chip Carter and the “Where the Food Comes From” team decided it would take two episodes to even begin to do justice to it all.

Part of the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) in Tifton, GA, the historic village and outdoor museum sprawls over 400 acres, with paths and unpaved roads leading to live exhibitions, demonstrations, and so much more. The park unfolds like the world used to — a small town with dirt streets and wooden porches leads to familiar country surroundings: a farmstead from 1870, a gristmill, a sawmill, a restored 1907 steam train – and all this is only the beginning! Simply amazing. Several times a year (including the time that Chip’s team visited), re-enactors appear, and the whole village comes to life.
