On Monday, May 21, we will once again partner with the Southeast Implement Collectors in presenting our annual Spring on the Farm and Tractor Show. The gates will open to the public at 10:00 AM and remain open until 5:00 PM. Anyone with an interest in vintage tractors will find this festival particularly interesting. Up to 100 tractors will line the Village Main Street. A variety of tractor games will test the skills of courageous drivers.

The afternoon will begin with a children’s toy-tractor parade. We are encouraging children ages 10 and under who have pedal or battery-powered tractors or mini-ATVs to bring their machines and drive in the children’s parade. The children’s parade will be followed by the vintage tractor parade. Weather permitting, the steamer will lead the tractors to the field for a plowing demonstration. One of our old platform plows was restored during the winter and will be tested behind the steamer. We hope the weather will cooperate.

The Livery Barn Restaurant will be serving its annual “Jreewe” breakfast on May 21 from 7:00-9:30 AM. Come start the day with a breakfast from the past.
