And So It Begins

As of today, we are officially harvesting!


Here's a close up of what they're cutting. That's barley. Malting barley, to be specific. Which means, yes, what you're looking at is beer on the hoof.

I LOVE your Montana! We've been coming here for 30 years harvesting your winter and spring wheat in the Jordan and Denton areas. You're lucky to live in such a beautiful state!

I'm feeling drunk just looking at it!

NW: The custom cutters are running full steam right now. And you know, that's something I always thought would be cool, to work for a custom cutting crew for a season and go all the way from Texas to Alberta. Except for that part about how I'm not really that crazy about farming. But I can cook!
