Reflections on Reaping, Stooking and Fellowship: Traditional Grain Harvest.
A final note on the rye and the harvest. We expect the rye will be sold to a craft distillery, to be made into whiskey, which is a pretty noble end for a humble rye and a very local spirit for Alberta.
Better still the proceeds of that sale will be going to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank on behalf of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund.
Not only will they be used to buy food for folks in desperate need, but since it is bought from local producers it will also reinforce and develop other farms on the other side of the world.
It really is amazing what God can do with such a simple grass like rye.
