Scaling up Flax Fiber Trials
An exciting step forward for the Fibrevolution team! We are scaling up our fiber flax trials and will be utilizing a mechanical flax puller to harvest this crop. Fall planting allows us to grow fiber flax in our region without the need for irrigation. This field will be harvested in June 2022. We have partnered with the Yamhill County Historical Society to restore a flax puller that they have in their collection, for use on our fiber flax trials. We have dug hard to find one of these machines in the USA, and this is the only flax puller we have found still in existence in America. Thankful for the support from our community as we all believe in the viability of linen production in Oregon, and together envision it's revival in our region. Stay tuned for more...
