    I started following this site a few years ago after googling wheat harvest. Since I live in Kansas and wheat is a major agriculture crop, I wanted to read about growing and harvesting wheat. Their’s alot that goes into producing food for America that most people have no clue whats going on.

    I check the site daily to see the updates from the crews as I sit at my cushy desk wishing I was sitting in combine cab. Today I am the CEO of a company but I started my working career as a cutter over 28 years ago. The work ethic and the general excitement of being with a farmer during harvest provides a rush every time I see a combine gobbling up wheat. I am obsessed with wheat harvest and the families who migrate along the 2000 mile journey. it is fun to trace all the towns and the crews that have been harvesting for all these years.

    My boss’s son is working with Jada and it is really great to keep up with work and weather in America and comparing it with how things are here in Scotland. The machines and the field sizes are all bigger than we have.

    I read and check the blog every day. I find the custom combining way of life fascinating and it is on my bucket list to do this some day. My husband of 24 years was on a custom crew before we were married and often talks of the lifestyle.

    I follow the All Aboard Wheat Harvest crew because there is no other site in the world that I know of where you can follow along with the harvest crews that are helping the farmers feed the world. I wish that we could show all of the hardwork that goes into that loaf of bread. Most people say that their bread comes from the store and have no idea how many months it took to grow the crop. Thanks to the harvest crews for keeping us up to date. Your work does not go unnoticed.

    I check in here every so often to see the stories of harvest. I grew up on a farm in eastern SD and actually went on harvest when I was 15. I was running a JD 9600 at that time. Nothing like being the little kid in the crew but still keeping up with the big boys.

    This site is awesome! It is lots of fun reading up on the harvest crews adventures. This site helps me to expand my knowledge of harvest by learning how each crew handles a sutuation that might be different from how I do it. Keep up the good work!

    I follow the blog daily to see and to some extent share the fun and experiences my son James is having whilst working for his second season with Jada and Leon. Keep the photo’s etc coming, and hope the wheat is soondryenough to have that crew bust again!

    Cheers guys

    highlight of my day. While I still work in the Combine industry, I can appreciate the daily tribulations of these crews – makes me harken back to my days riding in the cab being an oblivious “Wheatie”.

    We like reading about the wheat harvesting our son helped a custom combining crew when he was senior in high school- so it is interesting to follow them- only livin gin Iowa we don’t have a wheat but it is interesting to follow them on their journeys.

    We follow this daily with great interest in th wheat harvest. We farm in East Anglia, England ourselves. We came over to the midwest in June 2009 to see the wheat harvest and the many different crews. We met up with several different cutting crews and they were all so nice and welcoming. To be a part of this in small way and short period of time will stay in our minds for ever.
    With this in mind we hope to return in the very near future to experience the hard and wonderful way of life!

    We will look forward to more updates throughout the rest of the harvest before we will start our own.

    I have been reading this site for a few years and feel like I know the crews personally. I am a semi retired farmer who always wanted to go on the harvest run and could never find the time to get away. This is the next best thing to actually being there as part of a crew. Thanks to all who make this happen, especially the correspondents.

    I started following the page a few years ago because I like to see where harvest is and how yields and quality are. I used to be an extension agent for K-State Research and Extension but have since went back to work the grain elevator. It helps us know when to expect harvest to begin (normally but this year was a guess). I appreciate you all taking the time to publish this!

    I started following this in the beginning as well. Zeorian’s are cousins and my husband went with his uncle, Tracy’s grandfather, as well many many years ago on the harvest trail. We still farm and getting ready for harvest soon, and following the Zeorian clan along with Jada, Emma as well as the others just makes it that much more interesting.

    Have been following for several years. We farm is eastern Kansas and have several a. of wheat so it is very interesting to us to see and hear what is going on in the harvest across the USA. Kind of nice to know that we are not the only ones that have ‘trouble’ from time to time with getting the harvest in.

    Check in every day to see what is going on for the different crews.

    As a Canadian wheat farmer seeing the long line of trucks with combines, service trucks with headers, etc… pull in to your yard to cut your crop, well there is no other day like it. The excitment, energy and stories they brought was something we all looked forward to, and by reading these harvest blogs I can relive I time that I can not go back to.

    I have been following the harvest sight for three years and i can’t wait for it to start every spring. I was born and raised on a farm and it has been a long time dream of mine to go on the harvest trip. It is my bucket list of things to do. I check the sight daily to see how all the crews are doing and how the harvest is going for each crew. Because there is more than one crew it is interesting to see and hear the differences of each crews style. I hope all the people of the u.s. realize how hard the harvest crews and farmers work and all of the expense they have to put food on our tables. Thanks for all that you do.

    I follow All Aboard Harvest to see how the crops are doing south of us and to see how close they are to getting into Nebraska. It is interesting to read about the crews and the people they work for!

    Started following to keep track of harvest progress. Farmer in eastern Colorado and started driving combine when I was 8 yrs old. Gearing up for my 19th wheat harvest.

    I follow All Aboard Harvest daily. I have always wanted to go on the harvest run, but it has never worked out. I grew up on a dairy farm and became a partner as soon as I graduated from college. This is my way of going on the harvest run and making a dream come true.

    As a banker in Corn, Bean and Cattle country of southeast Nebraska I was first interested in the All Aboard Wheat Harvest story by a Nebraskan connection with the Zeorian Crew.
    However, I believe it really started when I was young and watched the combine crews, as I called them then, travel through my hometown of Fairbury, Nebraska. I lived along the highway and would see them first going south and then returning north later in the summer. I always would wonder where they were coming from and where they were going. These emails have given me a chance to ride along.

    I love to follow the harvest and the challenges of the harvest. I farm in Ohio and like to know what the rest of the nations farmers are doing and how. The pictures are the greatest part.

    I started following this site because our family is friends with the Roland family. It is fun to be able to see how their summer is progressing. We raise wheat in Nebraska so we also enjoy watching the crews move our direction as we watch our crop develop.

    I’ve followed All Aboard Harvest for the past two years. A friend of mine told me about it and we like to remember our harvesting days. We went on different crews but enjoyed the work. Now we each have careers and farm on the side.

    Some of the best childhood memories I have were riding on a platform on the back of my grandpas Allis Chalmers all crop harvester back in the 70’s while he cut wheat and soybeans. The dust was so thick you couldn’t see the machine, but it was great. The equipment was gradually upgraded over the years but it was never anything like what we have available today. Once I graduated high school in 89, I moved away to serve in the USAF for awhile. Well, I stayed for 22 yrs, working on aircraft, but always jumped at the chance to help with a harvest, cut hay, or disc a field. While stationed overseas a few years ago,, I needed my “farming fix” and ran across this website. I’ve been following it closely ever since, watching the crews live the dream. Someday I would love to be able to help with a harvest crew and get back to the land.

    I like to follow here reports. How the harvest is going down south. It is very neat how fast they move state to state to get harvest down for those farmers. I never experience custom harvesting crew job. Keep up the good work and keep those combo e rolling through the field. May be I see them in south Dakota Field soon.
