Farm Kids & Child Labor

do share

Every year we haul corn out of the grain bins in December or January to the elevator. The kids are always giddy about pushing their favorite shovel to move corn, as you will see in the video. Usually the weather is bitterly cold but emptying the last bin the beginning of this Jan. was unusually warm.

Here is the video from last year. You can see the difference in the kids’ sizes in just one year. They eat lots of beef.

  1. Seriously, I felt like I was back at the farm doing this exact same thing. Oh wait….I was. 🙂

    I used a comp day back at the end of December to help with cleaning out the bin. It’s work that I enjoyed doing….and look forward to doing again.

    I wonder how long it will take for these kids to appreciate cleaning out the bins? Thanks for stopping by.
