This is our fifth sugar beet harvest up in the Red River Valley of the North. It is a cool workamper job with great co workers. Each season is different and that is one of the neat things about it. This season has been on again and off again, but we’re hanging in there and makin’ money while we’re at it !
That boom is 110 feet long and it makes a pile that is about 250 feet wide.
Yup, thirty two feet high !
If this season finishes up as they have it planned, we will build one of the largest piles ever ! One year our pretty standard size pile was worth 11 million dollars ! That means that there is no telling just what this years much larger pile will be worth.
We probably get more questions asked of us, about the sugar beet harvest, than our other jobs. Here is a link to a web site that will give much information about the harvest.
It is outside work in all kinds of weather, but it pays regular time, time and a half, and double time ! Our full hookups campsite is paid for us by the employer !
Good folks, good work, great pay, hey, it’s the beet harvest !
