Neighbors Harvest Fields After Farmer's Death
EARLHAM, Iowa (AP) - More than a dozen farmers worked with six combines to harvest a crop near the central Iowa community of Earlham, less than a month after the owner died of cancer.
Dave Boyle, of Earlham, told KCCI-TV, "That's what neighbors are here for."
The farmers decided to help out after 64-year-old Dennis Scar died of lung cancer on Sept. 25.
The harvest normally would have taken days to complete, but the volunteers finished it in about three hours.
Scar's daughter-in-law, Nikki Scar, says the sight of the machinery pulling in brought her to tears.
She says, "We're just very blessed to have family and friends and live in a small town I guess."
