175 years in the making the Aberfoyle Agricultural Society, initially known as the Puslinch Agricultural Society, when it was formed in 1840 continues to survive and increase the awareness of, and improve the quality of agriculture, home crafts and the rural lifestyle.
To celebrate our 175th at the Fair on September 11 and 12, along with our regular attractions of an antique tractor pull on Friday night, our home craft displays, 4-H sheep and cattle shows, horse show, market tent, children games, food venders, etc., our continued association with the Farmers’ Market and our fair dance on Saturday, there will be a lawn tractor pull on Saturday afternoon. Special this year and this year only there will be an old fashion threshing bee and dinner.
Wagon loads of piled sheaves will be fed into the threshing machines throughout the day. Powering these machines will be antique tractors and steam traction engines. Local collectors have agreed to bring their antique tractors, trucks, cars and equipment for display. Other attractions include shingle makers, saw mill, rope making and a stone crusher.
The Threshing Committee has created a ‘Western saloon/restaurant’ to add to the flavor of the 175th celebration.
One special event you won’t want to miss is our Harvest Dinner put on by the Threshers. There will be a roast beef dinner with all the fixings plus homemade pies for dessert. Dinner will be served buffet style in the Optimist Recreation Centre (ORC). We hope to serve 350 dinners. All proceeds from this event will go to the Aberfoyle Agricultural Society.
Tickets to the harvest dinner are $15 and can be purchased from Paul Hohenadel (519-763-1098) or Don McKay (519-822-2984). See more at our website: www.aberfoyleagriculturalsociety.com
