Brian: Harvesting update from Onida, South Dakota…with amazing scenery to share!


Watch the video above to get the latest news on our progress here in Onida, South Dakota, as we enter week two of winter wheat harvest. We found some beautiful wheat, surrounded by an amazing scenery I MUST share with you!

Once updated, be sure to continue by clicking the video below as I share with you some of the BEST harvesting landscapes you’ll ever view as we combine along the Missouri River. Watch the machines harvest along the water, fill the trucks with grain, unload the semis at the bin site and take equipment to the next field.  This is harvesting at it’s finest, the amber waves of grain blowing in the breeze surround by the best views nature has to offer.

These are the moments we remember.  This is when we feel connected to the land.  This is why we labor…for the love of the harvest.

All Aboard Wheat Harvest is sponsored by High Plains Journal and John Deere. Brian can be reached at

      I’m glad you enjoyed the views, Tom! It’s hard to capture the wide open spaces and fields that seemingly stretch to infinity. The big site we frequently use contains 16 bins around 55,000 bushels each, and then a second row of 8 bings holding 80,000 bushels each. That’s a lot of bushes, right!?!? The sheer scale of harvest here requires bin sites of this size, and I could should you a number of other farms that have similar setups. It really is exciting and fun to be part of a harvest in an area where the scale and size of the task is unlike many other places in America!
