After a busy summer of baling hay, fixing fence, hauling cows to pasture, spraying fields and much more, it's time for harvest. Last week our team worked to swath barley fields that were ready to be cut. Today, the combines started up marking the start of harvest 2017 at T-T Ranch.
Like planting and calving, harvest is one of the busiest times of the year on the farm, and it requires everyone's help. Our team works hard to service equipment, combine the crop, haul grain, dump trucks, move equipment and prepare meals. Harvest time means all hands on deck! We are thankful for our team who works hard and puts in many long hours during this time of year.
Harvest is also a time to look back on the growing season and be thankful. This year is no exception. With farmers and ranchers across much of North Dakota struggling with extremely dry conditions, we are thankful for the rain we have gotten that have helped our crops and pastures grow. As many of our neighbors and friends prepare for harvest on their own operations, we pray that they have bountiful and safe harvests as well.
Stay tuned for more pictures and updates throughout the harvest season.
