26 Jul Emma: Wheat Harvest Movie
This past week the Misener crew has had the privilege to be part of something great. Conrad Weaver, owner – operator, Conjo Studios LLC, has come from Maryland. Conrad is creating a documentary of wheat harvest through his film making company called “Wheat Harvest Movie.”
We met Conrad back in March of 2011 at the annual U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc. convention. He shot a safety video for USCHI to help in practicing safety precautions. He mentioned to us that he would like to come out this summer to shoot footage for his new inspiration and we agreed. Who wouldn’t want to promote the American farmer? This is what we do and we need to tell the world our story and show them how we feed the world.
We were his first stop on the way to the Midwest and I must say we can all sort of relate to Conrad and his crew because his crew is his family.

Conrad and his family are really down to earth people and I believe they will definitely be great promoters of agriculture globally. We have enjoyed having them come out and shoot footage of us and our way of life. Unfortunately, the wheat around Gregory, S.D. wasn’t quite ready so it was really kind of a downer that we weren’t able to get in the field, but Conrad is happy with the footage he got. I am really looking forward to seeing his movie.
Conrad and his family stayed for a couple of days before heading toward Mount Rushmore for some sightseeing before they meet up with some other harvesters. Thanks Conrad and the crew for supporting harvesters and farmers, and telling our story.
If you want more information about Conrad and the Wheat Harvest Movie visit his website. His daughter Laken also does a blog about their journey and project that is very interesting – she does a fantastic job. U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc., All Aboard Wheat Harvest, and High Plains Journal are just a few proud supporters of this documentary.
Here’s your chance to be apart of something great, too.
Be safe and God bless!
