Farmers Harvest Crops For Friend Who Died


A group of farmers in Indiana are showing what it means to be a good neighbor. Dozens of them came together to honor their friend and fellow farmer, John, who passed away unexpectedly before harvesting this year’s crop.

The farmers teamed up in John’s fields to harvest around six hundred acres of soybeans. And there was strength in their numbers. Working together, they completed the work in just a few hours - much less time than it would have taken one farmer.

“That 600 acres would take us at least a week, maybe two, depending on the weather,” explains John’s former business partner, Scott Beecher. “So it’s a huge burden that’s been lifted.”
