American Farm Family gathers harvest as well as family values

“Working hard and going strong” was the theme of the day — bailing the wheat straw, and planting soybeans in the same fields they had just harvested went on into the night.

Doug Goyings prepared for a day of harvest at his farm, which has grown significantly since his ancestors moved there in the 1800s. Harvest is always a busy time that needs to be carefully planned, but spirits were high.

A sense of “organized chaos” was evident as soon as the first video interview with his son, Jeremy, began. Upon completion, his wife Jessica and his twin boys showed up at the shop to “supervise” the activities.

“Working hard and going strong” was the theme of the day — bailing the wheat straw, and planting soybeans in the same fields they had just harvested went on into the night.

There is no question that a supportive family is what makes Goyings’ operation strong, and that challenging work and long days are made slightly easier when spent doing something that you love surrounded by the people that you love.
