Harvest 2016 on the Palouse

It's that time of year again!  It's harvest time on the rolling hills of the Palouse - the time when we're hard to get a hold of, but it's OK, because you know we're out working hard bringing you some of the finest whole grains and legumes.  It's long hours, hot days and dusty afternoons (see below), but we wouldn't change it for the world.  We love harvest.


We have so much to be grateful for - an amazing crew that's hard working and dedicated, equipment that runs and a crop to harvest, to name a few.


Above you see our two combines emptying into a bankout wagon, which is essentially a tractor pulling a specialized trailer that's equipped with an auger so it can safely haul the load of grain over the rolling hills to the grain bins. There, the grain will be loaded into a truck for transport (below) or straight into one of our farm's bins for storage.


We still have a couple more weeks of harvest to go.  We're doing our best to get orders shipped out in a timely manner, but if you get the voicemail when you call, you'll know we're harvesting.

Great Local Ice Cream Deserves A Great Whole Wheat Waffle Cone

Spokane, if you haven't checked out Sweet Annie's Artisan Creamery, you're definitely missing out!  If you haven't heard of Sweet Annie's, they hand-make ice creams, with the best local ingredients and can deliver them right to your door.


We were so excited when Annie reached out to us and asked us to collaborate with them to develop a Whole Wheat Waffle Cone Mix for their scooping at local farmer's markets and events.  We were even more delighted when we were able to meet Annie and Amanda and show them around our farm.

We worked with Annie to develop a whole wheat waffle cone that any ice cream lover will thoroughly enjoy.  The ingredient we're most excited about is, of course, our Stone Ground Whole White Wheat Pastry Flour made with Soft White Wheat grown on our family farm.



So if you're looking for locally source, small batch, hand-made, life affirming and most importantly, crazy delicious ice cream, you'll definitely want to find their cart at one of the Spokane area farmer's markets.

And of course, you will definitely want to check out Sweet Annie's Pints Club for a monthly delivery of crazy-delicious ice cream.

From Our Farm...

It's time for another update from our farm!  The crops are looking great, as you can see below.  The heads are fully formed on the wheat and barley and will continue to ripen until we harvest towards the end of next month.


Here you can see the new crop of soft white wheat, as the heads are starting to change color from green to gold.


We're busy making the final preparations for the harvest...tuning up the combines, making sure the tires are ready on the trucks.  A few more weeks and we'll be in the fields, bringing in the 2016 harvest!

Breakfast In A Jar

We've shared this recipe for a Breakfast In A Jar before, but thought it would be fun to show you exactly how it's done!




We hope you enjoy this breakfast treat as much as we do!

Farm Update

The crops have grown quite a bit since we last shared a Farm Update with you, so we thought you might like to see how the Joseph's Grainery Barley has grown since we last checked in...


It'll continue to grow for another couple of months before we harvest it in late July or early August.  Then you'll see barley from this field on the shelves, shipped to your door or even in some local beer come this Fall.

Speaking of local beer, it was great to meet many of you at the Palouse Pint Showcase!  For those who didn't get to attend, here are a few photos from the event:
