Crookston, MN
(Former Crookston Implement Building)

The Red River Valley Sugarbeet Museum has chosen September 13, 2009 for their fall Harvest Festival. Sugarbeets will be harvested with a McCormick-Deering 1 row harvester and a 2 row John Deere harvester on the Museum grounds on the northeast edge of Crookston, MN. Besides the harvesting machines numerous other pieces of antique sugarbeet machinery will be on display. Video pictures will be playing continuously of sugarbeet work in the "Good Old Days".

A steam engine driven threshing machine will thresh bundles of wheat throughout the afternoon.

The Museum has decided to honor the former Northwest School of Agriculture and present Experiment Station for "Continued Dedication and Leadership to the Sugarbeet Industry". At one time more graduates of the NWSA were growing sugarbeets in the Valley than any other high school. The Experiment Station began doing research with sugarbeets in the teens and have continued to do so to the present day. The Sugarbeet Institute had it's beginning as a reserch reporting day at the NWSA.

There will be pork roast and potato salad dinner served from 11:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Bring you wife, bring your kids, bring your parents and grandparents and especially bring your cameras and join us for a day of fun and reminiscing
