Meet the Teams
Alan Roland’s family has been farming for generations, but for the last 33 years Alan has depended on his harvest income to keep the family farm afloat. He runs a small family operation that uses older equipment. Each harvest season, Alan spends six months on the road with his teenage son, daughter and nephew, taking on smaller, more challenging jobs in order to maintain his farm for one more year.
Trace the development of the massive machines that have transformed a season's labor into the work of mere hours.
