We saw some Bladen County Farmers hard at work this week harvesting their corn. We wondered how the season was this year for our county. Shane Harrelson said, “This looks to be a good year.”
Harrelson said his family has been farming since the 1930’s in Bladen County. The family of Farmers rotate growing corn, soy beans, and peanuts. This is the year of corn for them. They use a 6-row combine harvester. According to Harrelson, the 6 row harvester makes it easier for the farmers to travel on the roadways.
After the combine collects the corn off the stalks it dumps the produce in a bin to be taken back to the Harrelson’s Farm for the drying process. It is interesting to see the process. Remember, there are hard working farmers providing our produce. Thank a farmer.
