Time To Harvest Begins In Earnest Locally

Lancaster County was truly blessed this summer with what seemed like the perfect combination of sun, rain and temperatures. Farmers enjoyed bountiful fields of corn, barley, tobacco and more. This time of year is an especially busy one for businesses like Groffdale Custom Harvesting, which helps farmers with their harvesting needs.

With corn as far as the eye can see, the need is great to get it from the fields as efficiently as possible, and whether done by the farmer or by a harvesting team, it takes a concerted effort to clear the fields. Shown is a team from Groffdale Harvesting as they make the trip from one field to the next.
