Soybean harvest

Ride with another farm family who spends beautiful autumn days completing soybean harvest!


The Isley family, farmers in southeast Michigan, hosted a ridealong with program coordinator Elaine Bristol. Virtually step inside their harvester, called a combine, and hear about soybeans from Michigan farm fields to your family, wherever you are in the world!

The Q&A with the Isleys included:

  • What’s the life cycle of the soybeans being harvested today and what do farmers do every other day?
  • Where do the soybeans go when the grain tank, and then the semi truck’s trailer, is full?
  • What happens when the field is vacant after harvest?
  • And with everyone talking about GMOs, what does this farm family think?
