Harvesting For A Friend

combine soybeansSheldon, Iowa — A rural Sheldon farm family is experiencing the giving attitude of their friends and neighbors during this harvest season.

Steve Van Beek of rural Sheldon was experiencing some unusual symptoms this past weekend and went to see the doctor.  We caught up with Steve’s son, Ben, in the combine harvesting soybeans, and he told us what happened next.

He says that, after people heard that his dad would be out of commission for this year’s harvest, offers of support and harvest help have been rolling in.

Ben told us that he has been amazed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support from the people of northwest Iowa.

Ben says he won’t be in the combine Friday, as he’ll be in Sioux Falls while his dad is in surgery, but thanks to the generosity of the people of northwest Iowa, the harvest on their farm will still go on.
