There is a lot to see at Husker Harvest Days, and if walking proves too tiresome, consider a golf cart or a scooter.

Visitors can operate golf carts and motorized scooters at Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 13-15. However, vehicles like lawn mowers, Gators, ATVs and other utility vehicles are not allowed on the showgrounds.

You can rent a golf cart from Buresh Golf & Equipment out of Lincoln, Neb. These tend to sell out quickly. To inquire about reservations, call the company at 402-499-9806.

If using a personal golf cart, a permit is still needed. Visitors need to sign a liability waiver and purchase a permit at the east end of Flag Road on the edge of the parking lot. Permits for personal golf carts are $60.

Golf cart rules

To keep drivers, walkers and vendors safe, golf cart operators must follow these rules of the road:

  • Pedestrians have the right of way.

  • Golf carts may not exceed a speed of 5 mph.

  • Golf carts cannot enter an exhibit. They shall remain in the street without obstructing access to the exhibit space. Operators who drive into exhibits and tents will lose their permit, and the golf cart will be removed from the exhibit area.

  • Operators must remove the key from golf cart when vacated.

  • No pull-behind attachments to golf carts are permitted.

  • Golf carts may not transport more individuals than the number of seats.

  • Operators must be a minimum of 25 years of age.

  • Operators shall operate vehicles in a safe and prudent manner.

In those situations where questions arise relative to any aspect of these rules and regulations, Husker Harvest Days management shall be responsible for all final decisions.

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.
