Presented in partnership with the Mid Lakes Rustic Iron Club

The Mid-Lakes Thresheree is an immersive experience unlike any other.  The event is put on in partnership between the Mid-Lakes Rustic Iron Tractor Club, a non-profit, volunteer run organization, and the Manitowoc County Historical Society, a private 501c3 non-profit museum. 

Our groups have a clear goal—to educate the public and future generations with demonstrations of vintage agriculture.

This cooperative effort brings to life Wisconsin’s rich agricultural heritage with popular displays, field demonstrations, and countless activities for visitors of all ages.
