Someone asked us to roast some soybeans for their chickens. You can grind them into some awesome feed. Animals love it. At one point there were about six pick-ups across the street. Men were standing around everywhere. It looked like the state D.O.T. was doing a project.
Look at all of the augers involved in this process. One thing I have learned in farming, you can NEVER have too many augers.
So, you unload the beans from one dumptruck, and they go into the roaster. I wish these pics would have captured the steam that was coming out.
Then the beans are unloaded from the roaster, and reloaded into another dumptruck. The hubs and Levi LOVE to eat the roasted beans. Last night the hubs was bragging about how many he had eaten.
Me......not so much. They taste like the burnt coffee from Starbucks at Afton Ridge. But they smell a little bit like chocolate and coffee mixed.
