Garbanzo & wheat planting down at the Tammany Farm last week- Come take a peek at what the farmers are up to. Below is a video clip narrated by Farmer Joe from the inside of his tractor cab. Long hours are spent inside the tractor during spring and fall work.

Even though we were not completely done seeding down at the Tammany Farm, (the ground was still too wet in some areas of the field) the decision was made to move the 37 miles up to the Genesee Farm to begin seeding wheat and garbs
