The wheat harvest has begun in Nez Perce County and around the region.

We checked in on Kaufman JV up behind Ziggy’s near where the new Lewiston High School will be. Jeffrey Kaufman said their yields are above average, and their test results on quality are good. He said that’s a recipe for hopefully a profitable year.

The University of Idaho grad finished college in 2016, just in time for him and his brother to take over their farm from their father. He said being a farmer is rewarding.

“Oh absolutely. but I don't know much different either so I think there are a lot of good jobs out there but I just happen to really like this one,” Kaufman said.

Kaufman said the past few days of hot weather have helped their crop.
