Inscription.  

For over half a century, workers harvested grain by hand. This was a very time consuming process.

By 1900, Island farmers had adopted mechanized grain binders to cut, bundle and tie grain stalks together into sheaves. Farm hands loaded the sheaves onto wagons for further processing elsewhere. Combines replaced grain binders in the 1940s. These machines not only cut the wheat, but separated it from the chaff and stalks eliminating the need for additional processing.
 
Erected by Utah State Parks.
