Kansas Farmer is Blessed with Good Crop, Good Friends

Kansas Farmer is Blessed with Good Crop, Good Friends

June 17, 2016

This harvest, one Kansas County farmer was blessed with a good crop and good friends. Last month, Reno County farmer, Al Miller, was diagnosed with bone cancer weeks before his wheat harvest.

Miller's son, Verlin, along with his wife and five kids drove from California to help his dad with the harvest. When they arrived they were met with a welcome surprise. Al's brother-in-law, farmer, and auctioneer, Paul Nisly, started calling friends and neighbors in the areas to lend a hand. About a dozen local farmers came with their trucks and combines to help cut the wheat. 

Nisly said, "Al would be quick to help somebody else. In this community, we try to help each other out. You never know when you are going to need help, so it's a great time to help each other out. 

The group harvested all 500 acres of Miller's wheat crop. Al Miller and his wife, Dorothy, are still in Virginia where he is undergoing treatment. To get updates on this story you can visit kansasagland.com or search "Kansas Ag Land" on Facebook.
