Yesterday I sat on a rock pile in the middle of a winter wheat field to capture a few photos of harvest. My cousin Scott left his job in Calgary four years ago to come home to the prairies of North Dakota to farm with a neighbor.
Scott has a graduate degree in agriculture economics. He could have gone anywhere with his career. He chose to be here, to continue a tradition, a business, a way of life and to provide.
Making the hard choices are not always the easy choices. But the hard choices often have the greatest rewards. I am grateful for a next generation of farmers like Scott who live, work and breathe where wheat is harvested.
