Montana – There hasn’t been much to report the last several days. It seems that as quickly as the crew in Montana started their northern most stop of the year, they had to shut down due to green crops. Mark reported they were seeing yields in the 40 bushels per acre range during the short time they were rolling. Some of the crew members decided to visit Glacier National Park during their downtime. This has traditionally been a crowd favorite.

The crew in North Dakota has been also down for a few days, but were able to restart harvesting chickpeas last night. However, rains have them shut down again. They need the rain so one hates to wish it away! We are thankful to have crops to harvest when the time comes, so wait we will! 

Mark contributed the photos below from their current job in Montana.

  1. Your photos and stories make me wish I was younger and could join a crew. My soon worked on a crew out of Kansas several years ago and came home with amazing photos and tales. Thanks for taking time to share your experiences.

    • There’s guys/gals of all ages working on crews, Dale! Maybe you can still live out your dream!

      I’m so glad you are enjoying the posts.
