Threshing Weekend

Summer is winding down and the crops are ready for harvest. Learn the ways of early Minnesotans and help thresh the grain. Roll up your sleeves and help Kelley farmhands as they bring in bundles from the field to thresh grain in an 1856 horse-powered machine. Help bring in the grain as the early settlers did, then bag it up and rake away the straw. (10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat.; noon-5 p.m. Sun. $6-$9. Oliver Kelley Farm, 15788 Kelley Farm Rd., Elk River, Minn. 763-441-6896.
