Hardin, Montana – We’ve made our way up the harvest trail to our final stop in Hardin. Since we left home, we’ve made stops in McDonald, Kansas, Sidney, Nebraska and Chadron, Nebraska.

We made it to McDonald on June 26th. The combine didn’t see much action, but we were blessed to be able to help out another harvest crew with our support equipment. The rain seemed to move in almost every evening while we were there. When the combine was in the field, we saw 60 bushels per acre yields. Continue Reading

  1. I’m so very proud of the life these kids have chosen and the experiences the littles are getting is priceless. That being said, this Bebe can barely wait for their return to OK so I can catch up on some snuggle time!

Durham, Oklahoma- Whew! It has been a whirlwind of a month to say the least. I’m not sure where June went, but it was here and gone before I knew it. We’ve been busy with a little bit of everything and finally feel like we’re in “harvest mode.” Our cotton is planted, wheat harvest has started, and we welcomed the newest member of our family.

Dumping on the go in Cheyenne, Oklahoma.

We welcomed our precious little girl, Ivy Jo, on May 24th. She has been an absolute blessing to all of us. Her big brother thinks she’s the cutest thing he’s ever seen, and he is sure to tell her that often. She has adjusted to camper life nicely and so far has been as easy-going as you could hope for an infant to be. Continue Reading

  1. Ivy Joe ,Love the name has a good jingle !! She is like tooo sweet.You might have another Farmer/ Custom Harvester in the making .Sandi & I were blessed with are 12th grandchild on June 13th Harrison is doing great. He has an older brother Ethan also. How far north do you plan to cut this year ? Work Safe !!

    • Ivy is as sweet as can be!
      The plan is to go to Montana- but plans can change…especially during a year like this!

      Enjoy those grandkids!

  2. Must be great to start with a baby. Back in the 60s, the doctor at Lutheran Hospital, Wheatridge, CO announced “..you got your tackle! 22 3/4 inches, 11 lbs. 10 oz.”
    Your Ivy Joe is all brains, alertness and charm. Harvesters kids get to grow, while knowing their parents, not some babysitter.

Cheyenne, Oklahoma – On the afternoon of June 10th we had the privilege of welcoming four guys from the Boys Town Ranch in Edmond, Oklahoma- a ministry of the Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children. It is always neat to have a chance to educate anyone on what goes on during harvest, but especially some young, eager minds.

Lindsey: The To-Do List is Full

Cheyenne, OK- Wheat harvest is near, but we have a “few” things to do before then. I am Lindsey Orgain with Orgain Harvesting in Cheyenne, Oklahoma. This will be my husband Jason’s 12th year in business. We were married on May 5, 2012 and were in Grandfield, Oklahoma cutting wheat on May 7. Talk about a romantic honeymoon! I cannot believe that was five years ago. Continue Reading

  1. Awesome first contribution! I’m so proud of you guys. May your days be blessed and your harvest be plenty.

  2. Lindsey, Great to have a new crew on this site. I’ve followed AAWH, since day one, a super site to hook up with.

  3. Definitely Oklahomans such as those I grew up among in the 1930s and 40s.
    That ain’t fair though, we worked from South Texas and Oklahoma north to 200 miles inside Canada — with 12-foot cutter heads, three to five ton single axle grain trucks, which served as tow vehicles for combines.
    The boss and his wife had an 15×20 Army Surplus squad tent where they slept on cots, which folded for room to cook and serve meals to the crew.
    More than 75% of the time, there was no “town time” since the jobs were so far out.
    We trained the grain truck drivers to spell us on the Gleaners, so we could take one load to town every week and buy necessities, like a cafe meal, new shirt or hat.
