With the endless rain showers and spots of snow plaguing the Midwest, weaning calves, pregnancy checking cows and harvesting the corn and beans has been incredibly difficult for many farmers and ranchers. With attitudes as gloomy as the overcast skies, a country music radio station in Mitchell, SD, KMIT, realized the importance of bringing a little sunshine to the fields.

KMIT Farm Director Doug Cunningham has been hosting Harvest Lunch each fall season for area agriculturalists. Having grown up on a ranch himself, Cunningham understands the hard work and long hours producers put in to get the job done. He also hopes to translate this message to his listeners, so community members can better relate to the dedication and manual labor that goes into the foods they eat.
