As mentioned Wednesday this week, we would like to keep you updated on how things are going with the flax harvest this spring. At the risk of sounding a bit smug, we can confidently say that our efforts are bearing fruit, seed and straw in our case.
We have been working on growth trials, trying various strains of flax from around the world, and testing the fields for a few seasons, and we are getting very close to harvest in South Carolina. Winter growing is a bit of a challenge but flax is proving itself to be a very robust and hardy plant.
Speak to you soon!
