A farm is more than just land and crops. It’s a family’s heritage and future. Harvesting the Heartland: Stories of the Iowa Farmer started from an idea to tell the stories of Iowa’s hard-working farm families through photographs. The project has become more than just photographs. It’s become a record of Iowa’s farm families struggles and successes through interviews and photographs. We have been truly blessed to meet several families and hear their stories through a journey that has taken us over a thousand miles on Iowa’s back roads and highways.
