Just like with anything in the old engine club, they did it the old fashioned way, using antique tractors, an antique cutter and manual labor. The field, located along U.S. 10, is owned by Jim Howe Farms.

The wheat will be used for thrashing demonstrations during the 40th annual show, which takes place Aug. 1 through 4 at the showgrounds located at Scottville Riverside Park.
