Farmers Help Harvest Neighbor’s Wheat

KSAL StaffJune 19, 2014

The kindness of Kansas farmers was on display again this week, when some in Harper County delayed harvesting their own crops to help an ailing 85-year-old neighbor.

The harvest Wednesday on Jim Wene’s farm was necessary after he was found lying on his floor at home a few weeks ago. He was hospitalized for more than a week and is recovering in Seattle, where he lives part of the year.

A neighbor, Jeff Bornauf, says Wene drives himself to and from Seattle to plant his crop and harvest it. Bornauf says Wene was a proud man who was like a second dad to him. He says farmers always help each other in such situations.

Wene was born on the farm where the harvest took place.
