Dyersville is a city in eastern Delaware and western Dubuque counties in the U.S. state of Iowa. Dyersville is a thriving farming city with a long history. It is nicknamed “The Farm Toy Capital of the World” because it hosts a farm toy show the first weekend in June and the National Farm Toy Show the first weekend in November. It is also the longtime home of the Ertl Company, a maker of die-cast farm toys. Multiple local businesses are based on this part of its economy.
Summers are long, warm, and wet; the winters are freezing, dry, and windy; and it is partly cloudy year-round.
