Alan’s spelt stands ready for harvest. It will be harvested by a neighbor’s combine and loaded into large tote bags where it will wait to be de-hulled and cleaned.

Spelt or Triticum Spelta is ancient type of hulled wheat that is highly nutritious, with a deep nutlike flavor

This clever machine is performing the work of what would otherwise be thousands of man hours cutting and threshing the grain.

Always a happy moment when the crop comes in…no more worries of weather, disease, or weeds(until next year anyway)!

Still more work to be done but at least it is in the bag!
