Flying Field Day

We ran a field day and we ended up with five plane loads and two car loads of commercial farmers from different grain growing areas around Kenya and one (who drove funnily enough) from Tanzania.
Had a good day, it was a real encouragement to not feel like the only commercial farmer around which is how it feels sometimes.
We have been waiting on parts for our new secondhand harvester and although they are in Kenya it is a long process to get them through customs.
I gave up today and will just do what I can with what I have and hope it holds together, 600 acres of Sorghum is ready and I am very keen to get it off. No grain storage built yet and so all sold off the harvester to an end user.
