SMITHVILLE, Ohio — Farmers are often too busy to stop harvesting grain on a good day. They may be in the fields from morning to late night without much to eat. With this in mind, the Smithville FFA members took it upon themselves to “Feed the Farmers.”

From noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 24, members served over 100 meals to the farming community at Centerra Cooperative in Smithville. The farmers enjoyed smoked beef, homemade cookie, chips, apples, and many took multiple meals so that they could share with the family working back in the fields combining and running the grain carts.
