Summertime Snaps

I travel around Idaho, Oregon and Washington, managing farms.  Here are a few snapshots taken this summer.

Sweet Hills Farm: Huge, 1,000 lb. bales of straw. Straw is made of the stalks of the wheat plant, which is left over after the combine harvests the wheat kernel. This straw will be sold to local dairies, who use it for bedding for their milk cows, August, 2014.
