Seed cleaner

 Some of the most useful equipment for farms like ours is rusting away in woods or forgotten in the back of old barns.  Fortunately for us, a local farmer responded to our ad for a used seed cleaner.  Though it still needs some minor repairs it is in great shape and did a great job on our first effort at using it.  We ran some sunflower seed we'd saved through it and in no time had a tray of sorted and winnowed sunflower seeds.  We just need to make some more screens and then we'll be ready to go, cleaning our wheat and dry beans.  Useful technology is never out of date.
