This work is plenty difficult when considering issues surrounding global trading and climate change. We are thankful for your understanding. When the seed tells us it’s ready, we move in the equipment. Not as straightforward as it sounds — harvesting equipment is designed for agricultural crops, not for differing sizes and shapes of wildflower and grass seeds. We’ve spent years of tinkering and rigging and inventing and adjusting to make it all work. The story isn’t over when the harvest is in. After the harvest is dry, it is ready to be cleaned. It is sifted through a series of screens and blowers carefully calibrated to separate out the seeds we want from the hitchhikers we are definitely not interested in. Then we send it off for testing, to be sure that the seeds are healthy and will work for you. Through disappointments and frustrations of equipment and weather, there are more than enough rare and fine moments to compensate. We get the opportunity to do the work we love! And our greatest pleasures come in knowing these seeds find new homes where they can begin to re-establish their balance in nature. ...and in times like these, it can be hard to know what to do. As always, we are grateful to have the harmonious rhythms of nature to shape our days. Now is the time to plant many of the grasses and wildflowers that are part of the "rainforest" in our area of the planet - the plains and prairies. It’s time to reaffirm our faith that there will indeed be a future. A time to remind ourselves that each of us has the right and the responsibility to create little spots of health on an ailing planet. A time to do our part, in the hope that our children and our children's children might have a chance to experience the joys of watching the earth wake up from a long winter's rest to flower into a beautiful spring.
