Harvest is over!
Our 2013 harvest has officially come to an end. The combines finished up the last of our fields late in the afternoon on Thursday, October the 31st. Our goal at the beginning of harvest was to be finished combining by November 1st and we were able to achieve that goal with a mere seven hours to spare. From start to finish we ran for 49 days, and it's quite a testament to all of our full time and part time employees that we were able to do so with minimal breakdowns and very little downtime.
We'll now be turning our focus solely onto finishing up the rest of our field work; fixing washouts, repairing waterways, dozer work, anhydrous application, as well as preparing equipment for winterizing. A special thanks to everyone who helped out this fall and put in many long hours in the field. Without the collective efforts of everyone involved, our harvest would surely be far from over. Before we know it, we'll be pulling the planters out and getting them ready for spring. From all of us at Cummings Farms, we hope everyone is doing well, and with the Thanksgiving holidays only a few short weeks away, we're wishing everyone an early happy holidays.
