Agricultural machinery in action
The 62 acre exhibition area is divided into different areas. It is really exciting for visitors. Here you can see the fields being plowed and harrowed, corn being chopped, cereals being harvested with combines, baling hay and straw, mowing grass and harvesting potatoes.
The Historical Field Days take place outside. Please make sure to bring appropriate clothing like rain jacket and rubber boots for muddy conditions. Layered clothing works best to make the visit an all time experience. However, we truly hope that you can enjoy the Historical Field Days in shorts an t-shirt.
