Red Wheat Liberty Bell.

Liberty Bell Made of Wheat

Field review by the editors.

Goessel, Kansas

Life-size, an exact replica of the Liberty Bell made out of turkey red wheat straw. The land-loving Mennonites created it to be hung in the Smithsonian during the 1976 US Bicentennial.

The replica bell is inside the "Turkey Red Wheat Palace," which, to be honest, looks like every other one-story prefab steel farm building in Kansas.
