Living History Farms
11121 Hickman Rd

Living History Farms’ “original” community event! Watch as our historic farmers bring in this year’s grain harvest, using hand power, horsepower, and steam. Hear the smash of the flail and the roar of the steam-powered thresher. Demonstrations will be weather dependent. Event activities are included in regular admission to Living History Farms. Catch an 1870s rules historic baseball game* at 1:30pm.

*This season we have removed the bleachers. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to watch the game and spread out from other visitors.
