Place mat and Menus

I have several copies of of place mats, again thanks to Roger. I worked to collect these copies so I could get the location listing. I found each issue of mats changed the list of stores and often had new "coming soon" listings, some of which never came.





I am sorry the menu pages are so light and hard to read. Possibly you can blow them up to read them better. I am sure we all remember the Travelers Farm Plate or the Country Dinners, but there are several items I do not recall. If you have any menu or place mat items I would love to have a copy.

  6. Back in the 70's, while driving from our home in western Iowa to visit his family in SE Kansas, seems like my dad would always take us to a Nickerson Farm in NW Missouri. He once quipped that us kids didn't HAVE to order grilled cheese sandwiches every time. Looking at the menu, I understand why he said that. But at the time, even as the oldest, I had no idea what most of the stuff on the menu was. And their grilled cheese was excellent! Thanks for the memories.

  7. I bought two books there that had poems and sayings from a person named Dan Valentines. I have never seen them anywhere else or have found this author. Does anyone know anything about him? I'll try and post the titles of them when i can dig them out.

    I LOVED Nickerson's Farms. Hated to see them go and I can always pick their building out as I travel and see what they have been converted into.
