New Planting

Welcome to the Northeastern Wisconsin Antique Power Association, home of the Valmy Thresheree!

The Valmy Thresheree takes place in August every year in beautiful Door County.  The grounds are located at 5005 Country View Road, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

In addition to the Valmy Thresheree, the Northeast Wisconsin Antique Power Association (NEWAPA) works to improve and preserve items on the show grounds.  Currently, the projects include a tool wall as well as a replica gas station.

NEWAPA also awards scholarships to high school students pursuing degrees in Agriculture, Engineering and Forestry. 

We are often asked by those who have never attended; what is a Thresheree?  In the words of one of the founding members, the late Bernie Geisel:

Lucky are those who can remember the waning years of the thrash machines.  Yes, in those days they were actually called "thrash" machines.  The art of separating the grain from the plant was first accomplished by a flail.  Later, steam powered threshing machines moved from farm to farm to harvest the grain.


The mighty thrash machine era is over; ending in the 1950's.  Now, the hum of the combines rules the harvest, except at the Valmy Thresheree, where once again, the thrash machines resurrect to life.  The sights and sounds will help bring back your family memories and stories that went with the harvest of long ago.

The Valmy Thresheree offers visitors a unique opportunity to see the tractors and machinery used on farms in the early part of Door County's history in action.

Join us for demonstrations, entertainment, food and refreshments!
