The Seager Wheeler Farm
Come and visit a
farm that is being restored to its 1919 condition.
At this farm, Seager Wheeler grew the grain that won him five different World
Wheat Championships between 1911 - 1918. Visit the restored Seed Cleaning Plant
and see the equipment, some of it built by Mr. Wheeler, restored to operating
condition. Learn about cropping innovation in modern agriculture,
including direct seeding. The Seager Wheeler Farm continues
to be a part of agricultural research and demonstration.
Relive the story of change over the past century. Observe the soil conservation
practices Wheeler used, and discover exciting developments in modern
agriculture, including direct seeding, near the kiosk just east of the Seed
Enjoy the extensive English Flower Garden and formal flower beds. See how
Wheeler's orchard, once the largest on the prairies, is being restored and
Stroll the trails through the legacy of trees that Wheeler planted as wind
protection for the fields and farm site and watch for the many species of birds.
Notice how agriculture and nature co-exist all around the farm.
