STATELINE NEWS -- The 16th annual Old Farmin’ Days will be held Sept. 12 on the Ward family farm, 1171 Rockton Road, Caledonia, Illinois.

During the past 16 years the show has grown from a neighborhood picnic to a well-known event drawing in over 2,500 people from all over the Stateline area. There will be demonstrations of antique farm equipment being powered by either antique tractors or teams of draft horses non stop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Back again this year is "Haying with Horses," a demonstration of seven pieces of hay equipment all with teams of horses.

There also will be the usual demonstrations of antique tractor pulls, pedal tractor pulls for the kids, horse plowing demonstrations, kid’s games, a petting zoo, wagon rides, chainsaw art, blacksmithing, as well as plenty of farm antiques to see and watch.

This is a great chance to step back in time and see how farming was done many years ago down on the farm.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. For additional show information, contact the Ward Family at 815-389-9191.
