After carrots and onions, the next favourite topic of conversation here at Bean HQ is tractors.
So when someone suggested we be part of a Tractor Pull at the upcoming Scenic Rim Winter Harvest Festival the answer was a resounding and enthusiastic YES!
The Winter Harvest Festival is being held on June 29 at the Aratula Community Centre and will be a real celebration of all the wonderful food, wine and beer that’s produced in the Scenic Rim.
As well as live music, tasting plates, fresh produce, cooking demonstrations and activities for the kids, there will be a Tractor Pull. Teams of 12 will compete for a prize pool of $2000, donated by the Kalbar Bendigo Community Bank.
The teams will have to pull the Kalfresh John Deere tractor (estimated weight 12-tonne) over 20 metres in the fastest time.
Are you strong enough?
Here’s some of the farmers doing a test run to make sure it’s actually possible.
