Corn harvest

Meet Scott Miller, a Michigan farmer who hosted us for a virtual tour while he harvested corn.

We have a lot of choices when it comes to “local” foods in Michigan! Those choices start right on farms. Step inside Scott’s “office”  and stick with us through the audio variance.

The Q&A with Scott included:

  • How does the harvesting tractor, called a combine, work to separate the grain from the rest of the stalk and cob?
  • What are some of the differences between corn…field corn, popcorn, sweet corn…and how is this harvested product used?
  • What does “local” mean to a field corn farmer like Scott and his family?
  • How are farmers protecting Michigan’s environment?
  • What does it mean to farm alongside family to grow or raise products we all use?
  • Examples of what to watch for to keep families safe by sharing the roads when equipment is met en route to fields.
