Grab your pitchfork, it’s threshing time!

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Want to take a trip back in time?

The Ponoka Ag Society will be hosting a Farming With Horses threshing party on Saturday, Sept. 19 starting around noon.

People are invited to bring a pitchfork (three tine) to help load bundles on the racks and a lawn chair. They can purchase beef on a bun (as well as ice cream and water, or bring a picnic). All proceeds, including the sale of the oats, will go to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

The threshing site is eight miles north of Ponoka’s UFA store or east off Highway 2 on Menaik Road and then three miles to Range Rd. 254 and north one-half mile (on the west side). For more information contact Ken Pohl at 403-783-1290.
