Harvest, The Threshing Story

"Harvest - The Threshing Story" - Filmed primarily in Lancaster County, PA, where the Amish still use the machines and methods of yesterday, this marvelous 60 minute video tells the history of harvesting through authentic recreations of the sicle  and grain cradle, building wheat stocks, the reaper and binder, early "groundhog" threshers, horse tread and sweep powers, the "jump" hay press, "threshing rings" with huge threshing machines powered by steam traction engines through tractor-pulled and self-propelled combines.
