Old-Time Threshing Demonstration

Here is a cool opportunity to see an old time threshing demonstration. Threshing is the process of loosening the edible part of grain from the straw to which it is attached. It is the step in grain preparation after reaping. Threshing does not remove the bran from the grain. Threshing may be done by beating the grain using a flail on a threshing floor. - Wikipedia This is an outdoor event. Spectators will be required to observe provincial social distancing recommendations.
