Midwest Old Threshers Reviews
Attended with large group. The gate fee is a little high if your basically just going n to shop the vendors. They offer a bus ride from the large parking area to the main gate which is really nice... more »

So wonderful to visit this beautiful grounds packed with history. From antique tractor display to crafts and vendors to draft horses to musical entertainment! And old fashioned saloon and cowboy shootout and bank robbery! The food!! Yummy 😋 local Lions in and church's and boyscouts work hard to serve up great food.
