Keep the horses stalled:

Plowing Bee canceled


April 16, 2020

The annual old time plowing bee, which was set for this weekend, April 18 and 19, has been canceled. To stay in compliance with government orders on gatherings, the organizers have decided to forego the event which features teams of horses and mules plowing land at Mockenema as in days of yore. According to Mike Schwartz, one of the organizers, the field will still be planted, but with modern tractors, in the hope that the threshing bee will resume in its old-fashioned mode. The threshing bee is held over Labor Day weekend in September.
