Dozens of people visited the historic McNeil’s Crossing Farm Saturday to see how things were done in the pioneer days.

The first day of this year’s Pioneer Farm Days was a big success, and more events are planned for Sunday.

“This has been a beautiful day and we have had a good crowd,” said farm owner and event organizer David Cornett.
