We took these photographs the other day. The Combine Harvester cut a circuit round a field of Oats. To allow for a David Brown Tractor and Reaper to come into the field and reap the Oats.
Its a two man operation. One to drive the tractor and one to release the sheaves. They will be threshed later. These threshing events show people how crops were harvested before the Leviathian machines of today were invented. The threshing events also raise money for charities. Do you have any vintage threshing events near you?
