Harvest 2013

October 4th, 2013 by Cedar Isle Farm

The soft white spring wheat flourished during a wonderful summer and was harvested in late August. Hannah operates the combine beside a field of golden straw from newly-harvested oats.

 Two years ago, the Gentry family kindly donated a combine that had been parked for 20 years to Urban Grains CSA.  Agassiz-based  artist Mike Edwards (http://mikeedwardsart.com) spent many hours getting it back into working condition, and here it is – at long last – working  in a field of hard red spring wheat.  It’s an excellent machine, but some glitches persisted throughout the harvest, bringing new surprises each day.  (As a result, we regret that despite our initial plans, this harvest season wasn’t the proper (ahem) atmosphere for visitors…)  We’re confident that it’ll work like new next year (knock on wood)!
