Iron Cooker Year End News

From the desk of Iron Cooker

Antique steam tractors Throughout this year, we have made several new friends from all over the country and renewed old acquaintances at various shows that we have attended. It is as much fun for us to see all of you as it is for you to come to the shows. There are so many good memories from this past year that it’s impossible to mention them all but there are a few that really stand out. We had a great time at The National Thresher Show in Wauseon, Ohio and the Adrian Farm Show is high on the list. And we can’t leave out the Old Engine Show in Buckley, MI.

There are great people running these shows and each has something that makes it special. We enjoyed watching the Boy Scouts in Adrian showing off their skills with the Dutch Ovens and cast iron skillets. There are so many activities for children and adults and a wonderful potluck dinner for all! The show in Wauseon is one not to be missed. Everything from steam engines to old tractors and antique cars, as well as old lawn mowers and hit and miss engines is there to be seen and heard and don’t forget the “Spark Show” every eveningSpark Show at dusk. Of course, our hometown show is the Old Engine Show in Buckley with it’s working sawmill and antique locomotive, it’s one you won’t want to miss. You know Iron Cooker will be there with all our products on display.This show is really close to home for us and we hope to see you there next year.

We hear from many of you, with ideas of products you would like to see in our store and shows you would like to see us attend. Keep those ideas coming! We are listening! It would be great if you could leave a comment here so everybody can see and respond with ideas of their own.

Til next time!
