Harvesting Potatoes Old School Style...

Spent part of a day with our friends Aaron and Laura at Our Farm in Springvale, Maine to help with their potato harvest. Several months ago Aaron had stopped by and casually asked about our antique potato harvester and whether we would consider letting him try to make it operational again. We loved the idea of this nearly 100 year old farm tool being given another chance to work as it was designed. While this old girl is OSHA’s worst nightmare…after a little trial and error we had potatoes bouncing down the conveyor! Much fun was had by all and I am already looking forward to next year’s harvest!
