Labette County, KS -

Joe Sprague and his brother Larry have been a 2 man team for years on a farm they joint own just outside of Parsons. That is until a recent back surgery left one of the brothers too weak to work.

"I really can't do anything except pick up a piece of paper is about it."

With harvest season quickly approaching options were limited. Luckily Joe's community lead by long time friend Rick Mckinzie had his back.

"We made four or five calls and to be honest from that point on the word got spread."

"My neighbors started getting this deal together where they were going to come help us harvest," says Joe.

But Joe could have never imagined the turnout.

"It got pretty big, it's awesome, these guys are so generous."
