Here are some fun harvest stories that have happened throughout the years.

Some of you may know this but September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day. I honestly didn’t even know that this was a thing until last week. This day was made in order to create an opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another. In the early 1970’s, Becky Mattson of Montana created National Good Neighbor Day. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter issued a proclamation for it. Well, I guess they are right when you say you learn something new every day! Farmers are and always have been amazing neighbors.
When we were approached about creating vlogs for the Eastern Iowa Farmer, we could not have been more excited! Their staff is outstanding to work with and this project allows us to get creative in how we tell the story of agriculture. Our first set of vlogs will be available for viewing later this fall.
