Joe and Butch Deal of Deal Farms have almost come to expect rain whenever they hold their annual Plow Day event at their pumpkin patch located on Highway 64 West. This past weekend, as if on cue, the sky once again opened up and rain showers fell most of the morning. Despite that, Joe said it only dampened the event a little.
“We've still had a pretty good turnout considering the weather,” he said Saturday morning. “There was a few plow teams here earlier but when the weather didn't let up they packed it up and went home.”
But even though the plow teams left early, visitors were still treated to a ride around the field in a horse drawn buggy. While Joe described the season's crop yield, families filed into the parking lot of Deal's Produce, many of whom had out of state tags from surrounding states and from as far as Illinois.
