Chris and Alex Taft of Taft Painting prepare the north side of one of the Maasdam Barns for priming and painting this week. Taft Painting plans to paint all three barns. This project was made possible by a grant from The Greater Jefferson County Foundation. Visitors can check on their progress Thursday when Maasdam Barns hosts the October Business After Hours from 4-7 p.m. The event will include hot and cold apple cider, apple slices, cheese and crackers, as well as tours of the barns and a demonstration of the hay carrier.
