Though the Tractor Show Grounds will be “Where it’s at!” the rest of the 60-acre living history farm will be up and running also. Stroll Crafter’s Alley and watch as rugs are woven, brooms are wound and baskets are created. Watch the blacksmith form pieces of iron into useful tools. Watch as the miller grinds wheat and barley into flour to be used in the Summer Kitchen. He may be grinding corn meal also which may be used to make corn bred or corn fritters. An enjoyable and educational day for the entire family can be had at Tractor and Engine Show at Wellington Farm USA. Admission for the entire day is only $5.00 per person.
