Three inches of rain in the last three weeks fell on the Kirstein family farm northwest of Raymore, Sask., putting the farmers one month behind schedule.
Now back in the fields, Herman Kirstein is celebrating more than the 30-degree weather and marking his 70th straight harvest.
“[I have] never missed a one,” Kirstein said. “It doesn’t mean that much, I just enjoy being out here.”
It might be business as usual for the 85-year-old, working to get peas, canola and wheat in the bin; but, seven decades in the agriculture industry is no small feat.
