The National Corn Growers Association continues 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 caught up with Indiana farmer Brian Scott, who blogs at The Farmers Life, to see how corn harvest is coming along.
“Today, we are getting back to harvesting corn for the first time in a couple of weeks,” he explained. “I have been harvesting popcorn and beans instead for quite a while. I have about 500 more acres of corn to go before I will be done.”
