Farming is more than a career. Its a way of life for so many of Iowa’s farm families. Iowa farmers work day and night to feed our nation. They work even harder to take care of their family, neighbors and friends. They have a story to tell. Harvesting the Heartland: Stories of the Iowa Farmer is a project that tells those stories. We photograph and write the untold stories of the family farms that dwindle in numbers each year. At the end of this project we will be featuring all the photographs and farmer’s stories in a show.
