Harvest Land = Honest Ag

We don’t know the last time we saw men shake hands in a farm field, and we can guarantee there was no photographer there to capture the moment in perfect sunlight.

We can recall, however, the early mornings, long days and late nights we’re working with you to get seed in the ground, crop protection in the right place and applied at the right time. We’ve been running on all cylinders right there with you this spring.

This Friday, we simply want to share our latest video with you, reminding you that we’re not here to blow sunshine up your silo, we’re here to do what’s best for your operation.

Contact your local YieldPro Specialist for all your agronomy needs this season.

Mothers: The Original Nurses & Teachers

There are three big days in May to celebrate people we know well:

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. It features a host of events across the U.S. to honor nurses for the work they do, and educates the public about nurses’ role in health care.

National Teacher Appreciation Day is May 8. Most desks at the head of the class are filled on this day with homebaked goods, gift cards, mugs and hand made cards. Gone are the days of the apple, but now are the days of the “I don’t know how you do it” notes from  mothers of 20+ students.

But most importantly, Mother’s Day will be celebrated on the second Sunday in May, and has been since 1914.

How fitting, we think, that we’re celebrating nurses, teachers and mothers all within days of one another. Without nurses, teachers or mothers, where would we be today? Well, probably sick, dumb and hungry.

We think that Mothers are The Original Nurse:

When our early steps were wobbly, the world was inconceivably big and every wake up brought a new adventure or danger, we found Mom.

When the barn cat scratched, the dog ran us over or the bike hit the gravel just a little too hard and fast, we found Mom.

When we played rougher than we should have, climbed up too far only to come tumbling down, or felt something pop, snap or break, we found Mom.

When we were certain the first heart break was going to kill us dead and the pain was too much to handle, we found Mom.

When the yearning to go home in our first semester of college nearly did us in, disappointment saturated our soul or stress nearly sent us over the edge, we found Mom.

Because Mom has always known just what to do or say to heal all wounds.

We think that Mothers are also The Original Teacher:

When Mom said, “You’re going to eat it and you’re going to like it,” she taught us that she apparently knows us better than we know ourselves.

When Mom said, “You’re going to get along with your brother or you’re both grounded,” she taught us how to make wise choices.

When Mom said, “Remember, as far as anybody knows, we’re a nice, normal family,” she taught us the value of self presentation.

When Mom said, “You’re going to get those 4-H project books completed today if it kills you!!” she taught us the value of competing a task.

When Mom said, “Because I’m you’re mother, that’s why,” she taught us not to question logic.

When Mom stuck up for us when no one else would, forgave us when we didn’t deserve it, taught us well so we could go on without her, hugged us when she didn’t even want to look at us, held our hands through the lowest lows, and celebrated our highest highs, she taught us the value of Mothers. 

happy mothers day

Stop by our Greenfield Store today or tomorrow to find the perfect gift to thank Mom for all she has done, does and will do for you.

Hancock County Ag Safety Day

Our story of Cultivating Communities across our trade territory continues, as we attended the Hancock County Ag Safety Day on April 14, which was hosted by Hancock County 4-H.

The children rotated through several stations hosted by various community groups, such at Nine Star Connect, Canine Castaways Rescue, Greenfield Fire Territory and more. Harvest Land employee Vickie Ramsey was instrumental in organizing the day.
The Harvest Land station educated sixty 4-H members about grain safety. Specific topics included grain entrapment as well as auger and PTO hazards.

Today’s Photo Friday includes a few shots from our work with the youth of Hancock County.
