Very interesting, never even knew that people grew and harvested moss. I liked watching the harvesting process.
A lot people don't know about the moss we harvest. There is a lot more to it than just pulling the moss in the marsh. That is just the start. I will be getting video and pics of all the steps we go through to get the moss shipped out.

Yeah, dad is pretty good at running the old machine. He has done a ton of work with it.
Got to give "props" to your dad, you and all the machinery and the way you guys keep it runnin'. Wish I could turn wrenches like that !!!!
Some pics of my ranger. It is a piece of equipment that does work. I know a lot of people think that the ranger is just a play rig. Here are some pics of it pulling a hay rake and a "fluffer". We use it to turn the moss to help it dry. Normally a polaris 4-wheeler pulls the fluffer.
Our pump motor blew up a few days ago. We had to get our other 301 International motor out, transfer the pump and take it back to the marsh. Here is a pic of the motor and Walden loaded up ready to go.
