While many of you out there may see this type of activity on your local fields fairly regularly, trust us, it’s not flax that is being baled up. The CRAiLAR team is happy to see our flax which was harvested a few short weeks ago, get baled up, sorted and prepared to be picked up for delivery to our Pamplico facility. While the baling is taken care of with some very large machinery and talented operators, the logistics of getting the bales lined up, placed on the flatbeds, tied down and delivered is no small feat. Thanks to everyone for all your continued effort!
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!
