Sustainable Farming: Wheat Harvest has begun

The 2009 wheat harvest has begun. After plenty of waiting, watching and measuring moisture content we are ready to reap the fruits of our labors.  One of the joys of our homesteading journey is seeing the crops come in!

If you would like to learn more about homesteading and sustainable farming and get a glimpse of the harvesting of the wheat this year, please feel free to come by the shop and we will take you out to the field. The harvest will only last a week so make your way to the farm this week and catch a glimpse of Sam and Alfred harvesting and Ron discing in the residue from the wheat. We can't forget to feed the wonderful microbes who have been busy converting nutrients for our wheat to take in. The process is wonderful and well worth the trip out. The Shop is closed every Monday but we will be back Tuesday morning at 9:00am.
