When Harvest is a Time to Help

Sep 25, 2012

No doubt that the spirit of rural life in America rings true when neighbors help neighbors at a time of need. The trend of Combine Bees (or Harvest Bees) has emerged to help those farming operations who experienced hardship.

Here are two inspirational articles here and here.
Ashley Gulke Leavitt, of the Gulke Group, shared the story that her and her husband joined in a combing bee local man in North Dakota who had a heart attack. In the first week of September they joined efforts with 16 combines, 7 semis, and a bunch of grain carts. They got 1200 acres harvested in a day.
