As we turned north through Montana, we realized our route would take us through Moore, where Leroy and Suzanne live.
We stopped for a visit, and had the opportunity to watch their crop harvest in progress.
Leroy’s son-in-law, Warren, was driving the combine the day we visited.
I was amazed to learn that Suzanne prepares dinner each night of harvest for the workers, and delivers it to the field! Harvest can continue for more than 30 days straight, and she often serves 15-20 people.
After preparing the meal, the food is packed into coolers and transported to the field in the pick-up, along with tables, chairs and even tablecloths.
When harvest is in full-swing, often the workers switch off for dinner, so that the equipment can keep running.
