The creation of the "Great American Wheat Harvest" documentary has been a grass-roots effort.

Back in 2009 Film Director Conrad Weaver had this concept to video the wheat harvest in America from Texas to Canada. One of the first crews Weaver contacted was Zeorian Harvesting of Manley, Nebraska.

The 60 minute film explores the life of five different custom harvest crews on how the crop goes from the field to table. This weekend the film is being shown in Scottsbluff at the Historic Midwest Theater. The film will be also shown in Colby Kansas on April 25th. Weaver hopes to have film released through multiple channels in the near future.

The idea cam about in 2009 when film director Conrad Weaver of Conjo Studios was following a blog featuring Zeorian Harvesting of Manley, Nebraska through wheat harvest. Last summer Weaver followed Jim and Tracy Zeorian through harvest in Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado, where drought has severely hurt the wheat crop as well as the cutters that make their living by harvesting the crop.

The "Great American Wheat Harvest" documentary is being featured this weekend at the Midwest Theater in Scottsbluff, Sunday at 1:30 pm. The 60 minute film explores the life of five different custom harvest crews on how the crop goes from the field to table.
