The St. Croix Valley Collectors Association holds the Threshing Bee each August. A barn dance, old tractors and steam engines are part of the two day event. The bee had been held for many years at the Betty and Bob Bjerstedt Farm on Glover Road in Troy. A new location in Roberts was used this year.
