Vintage tractors and demonstrations at 'Back to the Farm'

WDM event featured vintage tractors and demonstrations of historical life on the farm.

YORKTON – The Western Development Museum and members of the Yorkton Thresherman's Club hosted their 'Back to the Farm' event July 30.

The event featured various vintage tractors from the WDM Collection, binding the crop and plowing the back field as well as demonstrations of clay oven bread baking, rope making, blacksmithing and butter making.

"Traditionally the August long weekend has been filled with the sights and sounds of the Threshermen’s Show & Seniors’ Festival. Although the partnering organizations had anticipated hosting the event once again, we are pressing pause for this year. We are very fortunate that our dedicated volunteers are putting forth tremendous effort and enthusiasm for the full event to return in August 2023," read a press release from the WDM.
