FUN FOR ALL: Bring the family to Husker Harvest Days. There is camping on-site at Husker Harvest Days. It is first come, first serve — so get there early. Then relax and enjoy the show.Curt Arens

If you’re heading to Husker Harvest Days, why not make it a family vacation? Pack up the camper, kids and grandparents, and head over to Grand Island, Neb., Sept. 14-16, to catch the entire show. And there are plenty of places to rest before the big show.

There are great camping sites available either on the Husker Harvest Days show site or nearby.

There is a space for campers at the north end of the Visitor Parking Lot. It is free; just come and park. However, the show does not provide water or electricity, so campers must be self-contained.

Several campgrounds in and around Grand Island do offer amenities for Husker Harvest Days visitors. Visit the Grand Island and Hall County Visitors Bureau at for a list of campgrounds and hotels.

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.
