Farm Country Grain Harvest


This is a short visual and written effort describing cereal crop harvest on many small, medium and large farms on the northern prairies. Harvest time is a season of stress, anxiety and joy. This is the season when the rewards of a good or bad year become apparent. I have tried to include some simple explanations describing the process.
