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!
The event will once again feature a petting zoo including baby lambs, baby goats, a baby pony, baby calves, ducks, chickens, a peacock and other familiar farm animals. Visitors will also be able to enjoy pony rides, buggy rides and train rides. Other activities for children will include tug-of-war and the popular “quarters in a haystack.” Pitching horse shoes and other activities will be available for the adults. We also can't forget the food tent with homemade icecream and other yummy goodies.
