Faced with a bumper crop, and with no one to harvest it, local farmers turned to the POWs housed at camp 202 near Greeley. Berthoud farmers trucked captured German soldiers into the fields to harvest sugar beets and save the crops.
Come and learn more about this little-known chapter in Berthoud’s history.
