The Borden and District Threshermen’s Society is a community and surrounding area ran organization that is proud to showcase farming of the past and has been doing so for over 25 years.
On the last Saturday of every September a group of volunteers present a day of horse drawn plowing, discing, and running a binder. The binder is used to make wheat sheaves which are then threshed by a steam or tractor powered threshing machine.
Vintage stationary engines, tractors, cars, etc. are on display. An authentic cook car that was once used in the area to provide meals for the threshermen is used to provide lunch for the day consisting of borscht soup, vegetable soup, bread, jam, coffee and juice.
There are approximately 400 to 500 spectators that come out each year for a great day of history in action. Spectators wanting to participate or volunteer are always welcome.
The day winds up with a roast beef supper in the community hall hosted by the Borden Museum members as well as volunteers.
We invite you to come out and experience farming from the past.
