People see corn shelling, potato picking and plowing with horses and mules. There are wood-working demonstrations, homemade ice cream and lefsa.

It's the lifestyle farmers were accustomed to in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Around 180 volunteers put on the show.

“There are a lot of people within a 100 mile radius, but we do have a few exceptions that come to help put this show on. It's a totally volunteer show."

The fall show is September 11th and 12th.
