Harvest 2009 is Over...

Adjusting the downed corn reel on a very cold morning...

The remaining corn at the Williamsville farm was all as flat as the corn in this picture...

Unloading on-the-go...notice how dirty the corn was.

Just as the rain and winds arrived late yesterday morning we finally wrapped up our 2009 harvest. A big thank you goes out to all of our employees and family for all your dedication, hard work and patience this harvest season!

We were fortunate to get all the machinery and trucks moved back home to Ashland and parked indoors before the temperatures dropped and the rain changed over to ice and snow. It is a good feeling to wrap up harvest, but we still have tillage that we would like to do if given the chance.

Thank you again to everyone who helped us this fall; whether it be driving a truck, running a grain cart, or delivering meals to the fields to feed our hungry crew - your help was truly appreciated!

  1. It was a fall to remember....even more for you guys. Been through a bin fire myself in in 2004 at the beginning of harvest I know how that goes. I haven't had to combine down corn as bad as that, won't wish that on anyone. Takes a lot of patience to combine corn that is flat.

    Thank God everyone is fine and can enjoy the rest of the year with their families.
