Off Campus Event: Harvest Party (Harvest Rice in Benton Maine- October 7-8, 2017)

The rice is almost ready. Human Power is what drives this operation and it means so much to have help during the harvest. We have topped 40 guests at each work party. Sure we could be using a combine, but we like parties more! We will also be testing out our new rice huller, custom built in Maine.

This warm September is helping the rice maturation catch up from a cool June and we hope to have the best harvest yet! Last year we sold and shared over 1000 pounds of rice seed across the globe, as well as 1500 pounds as food across the state.

The 4th rice party will be a weekend format.
