Crop Progress, Reap What You Sow

Harvest is slightly behind across the board. The current weather conditions warrant long days on the combine to get the crop in the bin. Our producers will work the long hours to reap the rewards of a high-quality grain. Harvest symbolizes so many positive virtues in life. My favorite being “You reap what you sow”, the efforts you put into the crops now often directly affect what your result is, which can translate to so many different things in our lives. Often families reunite to help, children travel home, friends lend a hand and the community celebrates these efforts. MWBC hopes your harvest is wholesome and safe.
