I Missed It! The Nowthen Threshing Show in August!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc.

I missed the Threshing Show in Nowthen Minnesota this year, I am ashamed to admit.  But the walleyes were biting, and now that I can conduct business from anywhere, I couldn’t make it back from the lake (besides we had a houseful of company. 

So this report from the Elk River Star News about a local family from Zimmerman will have to suffice for my yearly report.  And, they did a great job of reporting on the Hollister Family from Zimmerman.  Read on.  It is pretty interesting.

“There are hundreds of tractors displayed at this show from several manufacturers. Wade Hollister of Zimmerman brought his dozen International Farmall models. One of his sons, Corey, drove one of the family Farmalls in the Saturday tractor parade.

“I grew up on a farm, driving tractors,” said Wade. “I enjoy working on them, fixing them, collecting them.”

He runs a commercial construction business with two sons, Corey and Cody. They have worked on hotels, apartment buildings and fertilizer storage units, Wade said, throughout the Midwest including North Dakota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Oklahoma. But they always schedule business around the Nowthen Threshing Show.

“We enjoy this just once a year,” said Wade. “We kind of feel like this is our home show, where we like to bring our collector tractors out.”

He said it would be hard to imagine displaying them elsewhere. “It’s all I can do to get them here,” he said, “all ready to go and cleaned up.”

Wade was joined last week, for the first time in many years, by his father, Bob Hollister, who spent years farming soybeans and corn around Cambridge and Isanti. Bob retired from the work about 10 years ago and has since moved to Hot Springs, S.D. “It’s mostly ranch country there, semi-arid, a lot different than here,” said Bob, who added it was good to be back in Nowthen. “Seeing the whole show, it’s a lot bigger than I thought it was,” he said. “I love seeing all these old tractors, kind of from my day, and before.”

This is definitely a Mayberry event.  And, the elders get quite upset if the threshing isn't done correctly, Joy.

You gave a pretty good account of it last year.  Relax, and throw another line in the water!
