Ag Elsewhere : Montana – Harvest in Montana

By Jean Stimpson

“It’s that time of year again,” Montana rancher Jean Stimpson said, “Harvest!” In early July the rancher explained the photo, “This is a field of wheat on 28 acres of leased ground and it yielded 80 bushels to the acre. It’s about a 20 to 25 minute drive from our house, over pavement, gravel, then dirt roads.” When depicting the scenery Stimpson said, “Oh the view is breathtaking! The mountains in the background are actually in Wyoming and are about 50 miles from where we’re looking at them. We have seen bears on that lease ground every year too.” She concluded by saying, “I am in awe of the beautiful surroundings God has made and feel oh so lucky to live where I do.”
