With farmers across America busy with harvest activities, we thought it would be a great time to offer some helpful harvest advice from one of our farming partners. Matt McCleary is a third-generation farmer based in Western Illinois. He and his father currently farm around 2,100 acres of crops, including corn and soybeans. He gave us some helpful information about how he uses comms to his advantage on the farm.
When and why did you start farming?
I started farming when I came back home after college. My dad had an opportunity to grow the farm by a few hundred acres and it worked out that I would be moving home and working on the farm. Something that I had always known I wanted to do, but didn’t fully realize it until I moved away for college. I am the 3rd generation on our family farm.
