Vintage Harvest Rally
This much loved Wairarapa event on 3 & 4 February 2018 organised by the Wairarapa Vintage Machinery Club, is only held every four years. It's going to be at a new venue, Clareville Showgrounds.
You'll see rare, private collections of machinery in action in farming demonstrations. Get up close to machines restored by hand to original working condition.
Discover how wheat was harvested 100 years ago with man power and horse power! One of the highlights of the rally will be the harvesting of a specially planted wheat field. The harvesting, threshing and milling process will all be done by vintage machinery - a sight well worth seeing. Magnificent draft horses will harvest a wheat crop with a binder and a Clayton Shuttleworth mill will be working.
Also on displays will be vintage trucks, tractors, stationary engines and farming memorabilia from private collections. See the rare Foden steam lorry, wander through the craft tent where local crafters will showcase their works and enjoy a spectacular grand finale display with vintage fire engines.
A fun, family-friendly event.
Food and drinks available.
