Annual Steam Threshing Show-Day 2

Day 2 of our 3rd Annual Steam Threshing Event will start with a delicious pancake breakfast and feature the harvesting and threshing of oats. We take a trip back in time by cutting and binding the oats with a horse-drawn mechanical binder prior to the event. On the day of the event the dried shocks will be loaded on to horse drawn wagons and transported to the threshing machine. It's quite the process and we would love for you to join us.

We will have yummy food, antique and vintage farm equipment, and blacksmith/horse shoeing demonstrations. Don't forget the kiddos. Children's games and a petty zoo will be available for them to participate in all the fun! We accept and appreciate donations at the pancake breakfast or gate.

Annual Steam Threshing Show-Day 1

Did you know that steam threshing was a common summertime activity on almost every farm in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? Come see how the  threshing machines separate the wheat grain from the chaff and straw as they are powered by  large steam engines. It's a great way to go back in time and see how machines have evolved over the years!

Don't forget to bring the kiddos, we have a petting zoo just for them!

We will start with a pancake breakfast full of fluffy pancakes, real maple syrup, and local liverwurst sausage at 7am.

Demonstrations will start at 9am.

A lunch of pork chop sandwiches, chicken salad, and hot dogs along with other goodies will start at 11am. Come hungry!!!
