RainierAntique Tractor Club President Mark Loken said, “The Wilcox family is gracious enough to provide a beautiful setting—with Mt. Rainier in the background—for a weekend filled with family fun. That includes hayrides, a tractor pull, a display of antique tractors and horse drawn fire equipment." (If you love antique tractors, you should know about a magazine called Antique Power.)

The club’s slogan for this year’s June Jubilee is “Come see where your food comes from!” There will be plenty of food on hand, including FREE OMELETS all day, made from fresh Wilcox eggs, plus hamburgers and hot dogs for sale.

You can also take a tour of the Wilcox hard-boiled egg plant.

Hard-boiled egg plant? I’d never heard of such a thing. They cook, peel, and package these eggs for the ultimate summer time saver, perfect for potato salad, sandwiches, deviled eggs, or picnics. Wilcox has been around since 1909 (see history) but the old farm has kept up with consumer demand. In 2005 Wilcox Family Farms committed their business to more natural and sustainable practices, transitioning to cage-free, vegetarian, and organic egg production, with chickens living like chickens should, outdoors and eating an organic diet.
