Agriculture, and especially the production of wheat, has been a major part of Harvey County's history since the 1870s.
It is fun to think about the ways that wheat harvest has changed over the years, yet remained much the same.

So, drive carefully around those old wheat trucks, enjoy Kansas at it's best.
