Hollywood Plow Day set for Saturday, Sept. 7

By Starrla Cray

One doesn’t normally see antique tractors and old-time plows working in the field – but at Hollywood Plow Day, the past springs to life.

The second-annual plow day is set for Saturday, Sept. 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in a field two miles southwest of the Hollywood Complex (16555 Utah Drive, Mayer).

The event is free, and open to the public.

Hollywood Township farmer Larry Kassulker organized the first plow day in 2012, and it attracted about 100 spectators.

“We’ll probably have a few more than last year,” Kassulker said. “More have been asking about it.”

In 2012, about 18 tractors of various brands (such as John Deere, International Harvester, and Allis Chalmers) were used to conduct plowing demonstrations. Some people brought their own old-time plows, while others used extra plows Kassulker had purchased at an auction.

This year, the plow day is co-sponsored by Channel seed brand, sold by Hollywood Hybrids in Hollywood Township.

Food will be served by St. John Lutheran Church of Hollywood Township.

“It’s fun,” Kassulker said. “It lets other people see how they used to plow before modern tractors.”

To learn more, sign up as a vendor or demonstrator, or become a co-sponsor, contact Kassulker at (952) 955-2755 or (952) 649-7295.
