This week, the National Corn Growers Association kicked off its sixth season of Field Notes, a series that takes readers behind the farm gate to follow the year in the life of American farm families. While these growers come from diverse geographic areas and run unique operations, they share a common love for U.S. agriculture and the basic values that underpin life in farming communities.
This week, Field Notes catches up with Indiana farmer Brian Scott, who blogs at www.thefarmerslife.com. From discussing watching his 89-year old grandfather harvest through his phone in the maternity ward to sharing the sustainability practices his farm has put into place for his children, Scott paints a vivid picture of how the idea of a farm family is daily reality.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks as Field Notes follows the growers who have opened their farms, families and communities up this year and meet the true faces of modern American agriculture.
