Get a taste of how folks had to work in the way back days of farming.
A special binding event is being hosted on the Ken Pohl farm on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. (weather permitting) on five acres of farmland north of Ponoka.
It’s an ideal opportunity to see antique farm equipment in action, plus attendees and volunteers will be able to learn about stooking and getting the crop ready.
Don’t know what stooking is? This is a great chance to learn.
Pohl is hoping to not only get people out to see the binding but also to help out. Stookers are needed; bring your own pitchfork, says Pohl.
It’s a chance to turn back the clock and get a feel of what it took to harvest a field.
The proceeds from the harvest is donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, plus the Ponoka Agricultural Society has been a supporter of the project since it began in 2015.
