The Story of Threshing

The WDM’s world famous steam and gas engines huff and puff at the Story of Threshing which showcases the march of farm power from human to horse, from steam to gas-powered machines, as golden sheaves are threshed into grain.

Parade of Power

Witness the awesome power of operating steam and gas engines and early agricultural equipment.
