Hundreds attend 14th Annual Corn Shredding Autumn Harvest Days

LAKE CITY, Minn. (KTTC) -- Hundreds attended the 14th Annual Corn Shredding Autumn Harvest Days in Lake City over the weekend.

"We really believe it's important to show kids what farming was like and how things have progressed over time and then also give them an opportunity to see where different grains and commodities come from," said Michael Ohlhaber, an organizer of the event.

More than 100-tractors and 70-farm tools were displayed at this year's Harvest Days.  It's a way for those who are passionate about their trade to share their talents.  Ron Graner restored his father's 1940's engine.  It took him almost a year, but he says it was something he couldn't stop thinking about when it came time to fixing it.

"I woke up at 1:00 in the morning and decided to pull out the gear and one cog and put it back together and maybe it will run-it's been running ever since," said Graner.

Now, Graner shows his restored engines at Harvest Days-a place he's been coming with his grandson for years.

"It's something we do together and it's fun," said Graner.

The 2-day event also features breakfast and lunch, corn shredding, silo filing a kids pedal tractor pull and the Minnesota State Corn Husking Contest.  Each year Harvest Days travels to another local farm.  Autumn Harvest Days ended Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
