Help bring in the grain as the early settlers did. Assist Kelley farmhands as they transport grain bundles from the field with oxen. Earn a little sweat equity by hauling bundles and bagging grain at the 1856 horse-powered threshing machine and stacking the straw.

  • 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat 9/3; noon-5 p.m. Sun 9/4. $5-$8.
  • Oliver Kelley Farm, 15788 Kelley Farm Road, Elk River
