- Dinnertime at an actual 19th-century farmhouse would have consisted of hearty ingredients like buttered biscuits and roasted game.
- Thanks to their resident cows, farmhouse families would have enjoyed nightly glasses of fresh milk (usually warmed on the stove)!
- The decor of a typical 19th-century farmhouse dining room would have consisted of handcrafted wood- and crochet-work, both popular hobbies of the time.
- The ambiance of a typical 19th-century farmhouse would have felt natural and simple, thanks to natural wood furniture and woodwork decor.
- Dinnertime in a 19th-century farmhouse would have been around sunset, at which time the fields would have been too dark for the farmers to continue to work, anyways!
