An early education

Shutter Stopper: Send us your farm photos.

Ten-month-old Lawson Engelhard is getting a little education from Grandpa Dennis Engelhard (not pictured), July 11, on the organic wheat that his dad, Nathan, just harvested in Unionville. This is Lawson’s first wheat harvest of many to come, says his mom, Amy. “We have been counting our blessings between the rows as he takes his first steps, especially when he sees Dad in the combine,” she says. Amy and Nathan were married Sept. 12, 2015, and featured in the December 2015 issue of Michigan Farmer with a wedding picture taken on the farm.

Please send them to [email protected] and say a little about your farm, the photo, who is in it, where and when it was taken, and ages if children are featured.
