Threshing Days in Gossel, Kansas

| June/July 2000

Box 131 Goessel, Kansas 67053

This is story of Threshing Days, put on by the Wheat Heritage Engine and Threshing Co., Goessel, Kansas.

Twenty-seven years ago a handful of individuals interested in preserving our heritage of threshing wheat got together and brought out a few old gas engines and threshed wheat using a 12 HP IHC Famous gas engine and a small wooden handfed threshing machine. Today this has turned out to be a three day show on the plains of Kansas, the first full weekend of August.

There are approximately 80 gas engines, 125 tractors, a half dozen large prairie tractors, a couple of steam engines, several large gas engines including a 200 HP DeLa Vergne sideshaft, plus a museum dedicated to the coming of the Mennonites to central Kansas in 1874, bringing with them Turkey Red hard winter wheat. A flea market, a sawmill, and antique tractor pull are all part of the weekend activities.

Goessel is located in the central part of Kansas, about 35 miles north of Wichita. Come and join us August 4, 5 and 6, 2000 for a great weekend that the whole family will enjoy.
