All ages will come together at the 20th annual Farming Heritage Show this Friday and Saturday.
This year’s show will feature BF Avery, Cletrac, MM and Oliver tractors with a drawing for a fully restored BF Avery. Tickets for the drawing will be available in advance of the show and at the festival.

The show will feature demonstrations for belt powered buzz saws, antique threshers, tractor skills and more. There will also be a mens wrench and ladies skillet tosses during the two-day festival.
Kids who attend will also have opportunity for entertainment with rope making, face painting and coloring events all day.
