OWOSSO TWP. — Devries Nature Conservancy hosted its third annual Historic Plow Day event Saturday and Sunday, with horses and mules plowing fields the way it was done before tractors were common.

Visitors were on hand from across the state and region. A three-mule team came from Ohio to take part.

“There’s a generation who has no clue that this is how farming is done so it’s pretty cool to be able to expose them to it,” said Ben Glardon, DeVries executive director. “Part of the mission here is to promote historic farming.”
