Lake County Farmer Honored

South Dakota farmers always put the ‘heart’ in the word ‘Heartland’.  And it was most evident at a family farm north of the town of Wentworth, South Dakota on Wednesday.

David Feige was preparing for his harvest in late September when the combine corn header he was working on fell on him, taking his life.  But thanks to the kind hearts of the 58-year-old’s neighbors and friends, the Feige family’s harvest was able to continue.

Organizers and workers of the ‘Harvest Bee’ looked at what they were doing as so much more than just ‘bringing in the harvest’.  Thoughts of David Feige and how much he was respected made this harvest almost therapeutic.

Numbers that totaled about 50 trucks, 15 grain carts and 25 combines were able to help the Feige family combine more than 1,000 acres of beans.  And even though there were enough volunteers, the friends and neighbors kept coming.  Farmers that finished their own fields came to watch and help as the acres continued to be harvested, bringing with them their own wives and children, and the opportunity to pay their respect to David.

At the end of the day everyone involved had one final meal next to a John Deere tractor.  Another successful ‘Harvest Bee’ again proving that there is ‘heart’ in the ‘Heartland’.
