Favorite part would be just before a field is opened. All of that golden wheat standing out there. Beautiful.

I can’t think of anything I do NOT like about wheat harvest! But if I had yo choose my favorite its probably running a brand new Deere combine every year!

combining a very good wheat crop

The wheat harvest for us normally lasts a week or two. But this wonderful site, which we have followed from it’s begining, has allowed us to share in the wheat harvest from many states and with many great people. To me as a farmer I enjoy running the combine the most, but I also appreciate how the harvest bring families together, all joining in to do a job. We are all richly blessed as we harvest the land and help feed the world!

Favorite part of wheat harvest is the last day when all is winding down and a good job is done.

My favorite part of harvest is being able to cut all day long without a breakdown.

I just love seeing the combines in the field and knowing they are bringing in what we have worked hard for all year. It just amazes me that God takes a few seeds in the dirt with a little tending multiplies it so much.
JuliePosted at 09:19h, 08 August
The satisfaction of completing a job – usually with hardships along the road. This life we’ve chosen isn’t easy, is usually filthy and always stressful. But I don’t think any of us would change it for the world!!

My favorite part are the trucks! Watching them roll in and out of the fields with the harvest and appreciating all the different makes and models. Brings me and my boys closer together pointing out trucks that I rode in with my dad and passing down the memories.

The sun setting over the wheat field during harvest

Reading the different crew reports brings back powerful memories of earlier days when the largest truck was a three-ton dually with 44 inch high grain box, hauling directly from the old Gleaners and IH combines with 20-foot headers.
What I would give for a chance to operate one of these modern rigs with the 40-foot header, GPS, auto-pilot, (Moisture/Weight and actual production per square yard of field on the recorder).
We used to dream of air conditioning in the trucks. Forget the combines. Never dreamed of a grain cart or a semi reefer converted to a luxury mobile home. The lucky ones got to sleep under combines, junior crew members slept under the trucks.
