We are living in a pool of green! Dark green corn. Soybeans carpeting over ebony soil. Heartland. Breadbasket.

Bordered by the mighty Mississippi ... a highway to the world. The Wabash and Ohio rivers, Lake Michigan ... water, water everywhere!

Monster grain bins hold the soil’s gifts: food, fuel, fiber. Food security ...

What a place. What a time.

What a team ... of people. Working together to produce. Food.

The scientist. The educator. Engineers. Machine builders. Processors. Transporters.


Farm families.


Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!
