It’s already January. Can you believe it?

The school year is half over; kindergartners are almost to first grade and sixth graders are almost to the middle school and seniors are almost finished with locker combinations and mandatory gym class. Time really flies, doesn’t it?

The students in our trade territory aren’t just the local teens or FFA members, they’re part of our Harvest Land family. We’ve seen some of them learn how to drive by picking up feed at our Ag Centers, we’ve visited with them at the counter about their 4-H projects, and we’ve even gotten the real story about how the dent in their dad’s farm truck really came to be. We’ll be honest: We kind of miss the local kids when they grow up and go to school.

So, we try to help them out a little if we can.
