In this week's installment of Agland, Amy Bickel and Kathy Hanks give an update on a young farmer who was severely injured last harvest season. The man was not expected to live, but life had other plans, and he's made it back just in time to help bring in this year's crops.
Hoarding isn't confined to city limits. The duo explore the phenomenon happening down on the farm.
