It would seem that Fall on the Farm is a favourite MHV summer festival for many people. We wonder if it has to do with specific activities like hog and chicken butchering, with unique food such as corn on the cob and apple fritters, or with the fact that this is the last festival of the summer. Whatever the reason, over 2000 people attended this, our 50th anniversary edition of Fall on the Farm on September 1. This is an increase of about 500 people over last year’s attendance. With the close of the summer festival season we need to again thank our volunteers, sponsors, supporting clubs, staff, and most importantly, the many guests who chose to attend and participate in the festivities. The museum and its festival program would not succeed without any one of these. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
