As I was sorting through some vintage family photos recently, I ran across this one. One cannot help but notice how labor-intensive harvest was in the days gone by. One person does with a combine today the job that these 12 men did years ago. If you look close, you can also see two horses.
I grew up on a farm in Ogle County, Illinois. I had a career in education for 30-plus years, then went back to farming and fully retired in 2009. Every month I look forward to receiving my copy of Farm Collector!
