On Kansas Farm, Wheat Harvest Is Family Time

KSAL StaffJune 28, 2013

Anyone inclined to grumble about mowing the lawn in the steamy Kansas heat might consider the example of the Kent Winter family.

The Wichita Eagle reports the family of 10 – parents Kent and Susan and their eight children – have been working from sunrise until late at night to bring in their wheat crop.

They grow about 800 acres of wheat in Andale, located northwest of Wichita in Sedgwick County. Kent and one son run the combines, while others run a tractor and trailer to collect the wheat for transport to the Andale Farmer’s Co-op elevator.

Kent Winter calls the harvest his 10 busiest days of the year. But he and Susan also say it’s a blessing – a time of keeping the family farm together.
