The Country Lifestyle market is where you can buy creative crafts or spicy jams during Husker Harvest Days.

This year the Country Lifestyle market moved to a new location in the Diversified Industries’ North Building on Sixth Street and Central Avenue. For years, this exhibit has been in a tent on the south end of West Avenue, but this year it is in the heart of the Husker Harvest Days show site.

Nearly 20 crafters from Nebraska and surrounding states will showcase and sell their wares in the Country Lifestyle market. You’ll find creations ranging from candles, jewelry, paintings, farm toys, quilts, pottery, jam and much more.

Get a head start on holiday gift shopping at the Country Lifestyle market. The listing below offers a glimpse of some of the crafters exhibiting at this year’s Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 14-16, in Grand Island, Neb.

About the Author(s)

Mindy Ward

Editor, Missouri Ruralist

Mindy resides on a small farm just outside of Holstein, Mo, about 80 miles southwest of St. Louis.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural journalism, she worked briefly at a public relations firm in Kansas City. Her husband’s career led the couple north to Minnesota.

There, she reported on large-scale production of corn, soybeans, sugar beets, and dairy, as well as, biofuels for The Land. After 10 years, the couple returned to Missouri and she began covering agriculture in the Show-Me State.

“In all my 15 years of writing about agriculture, I have found some of the most progressive thinkers are farmers,” she says. “They are constantly searching for ways to do more with less, improve their land and leave their legacy to the next generation.”

Mindy and her husband, Stacy, together with their daughters, Elisa and Cassidy, operate Showtime Farms in southern Warren County. The family spends a great deal of time caring for and showing Dorset, Oxford and crossbred sheep.
