Lindsey: Harvest is on the Horizon

Cheyenne, OK – Greetings from western Oklahoma! I am Lindsey Orgain with Orgain Harvesting and I’m glad to be joining you for another wheat harvest season. My husband, Jason, and I have a 4 year old son Mason and a 1 year old daughter Ivy. We are a small, family-owned & operated business based out of Cheyenne, Oklahoma. This will be our 11th year in operation.

This harvest season greets us with much uncertainty. Until mid-May we had not seen any significant rainfall since October 2017. It’s been so terribly dry. As you travel through our little corner of the world, you will see baled-up wheat fields and wheat fields that have suffered from drought & freeze and stand no chance of producing a crop. “Discouraged” is about the only way to describe how many producers are feeling about this year’s crop. We feel very fortunate to have some acres of our own to cut. We are hoping and praying that it will at least produce enough to seed to be able to replant in the fall.

Our wheat will be ready to cut very soon!

I hate to sound negative, but unfortunately that is the state of things around here. At this point we are not sure what the future holds for us as far as wheat harvest goes, but we are faithful people and know God’s plan for us and all the producers and custom harvesters will unfold in time.

Mason is excited to get those combines going!
