Neighbors, family and friends took time away from their own harvest and daily activities to help the Fiege Farm combine and transport 1100 acres of soybeans on Wednesday. With 25 combines, 50 plus trucks and many tractors and grain carts, it only took 4 hours actual time to get the crop out of the field. A couple of rain delays allowed for fellowship and story-telling before the job was done. Area businesses provided lunch in the fields and Farm Bureau cooked burgers at the end of the day. My thanks go to Roger Schrepel and Jerry Gehrels for organizing the event, area farmers that gave up part of their busy season to remember a friend and my dad for helping me locate the many fields as we took pictures.
It was a fitting tribute to David Fiege.
