A Year On The Field is not just about the big picture, but also about little anecdotes and wheat-stories. We were particularly pleased when, at a very early stage of the project, Barbara Fisher from Ohio (US) contacted us and told us about a seed box including wheat that belonged to her father and that was is still in her possession.
It turned out to be a seed box consisting of a total of 18 jars that Barbara's father, Robert S Fisher of Ashland, Ohio, had put together as part of a FFA (Future Farmers for America) Seed Project.
Besides the before-mentioned wheat, the box (dated April 29, 1940) also contains flax, millet as well as various types of clover and timothy.
We sincerely thank Barbara Fisher for sending us this fascinating journey into the youth of a young farmer from rural America.
