There was also plenty of focus on wheat (from field to table) and the aroma of fresh baked bread was wafting through the museum all day. Visitors had the chance to stand inside a grain elevator and learn how it worked first hand to receive and distribute grain.
Kelly was especially happy to see the old tractors lovingly restored and in perfect working order. They were proudly putting around through the crowds - absolute showpieces!
As we are studying James Watt this term, this field trip was the perfect launching point for our homeschool year and just plain fun for the whole family :)
