Horse Plowing at the Maize Maze Fields

Saturday, April 17, 2010
Rain Date: Saturday, April 24, 2010
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Gilbertson Conservation Education Area

Go East out of Elgin on Agate Road or County Road B64 then turn onto A Ave. and you will soon see the Gilbertson Nature Center on you right and the Maize Maze site on your left.

The State Line Plowing Association of Southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa, plus others will once again plow the Maize Maze Fields with their horses, Mules, and Plows.

For the last 5 years they have come to help tell the story how our ancestors plowed the fields and in doing so preserving our agricultural history.

So grab you camera, some shoes you can get dirty and join in the fun of some old fashion plowing.
