For generations, farm families and rural folks have shared unique traits. For one, they help each other through life’s ups and downs. Although it is not often talked about, being a good neighbor is a common philosophy. And that unspoken mannerism is evident during times of hardship as well as times of celebration. Coming to lend a helping hand is just what rural neighbors do when there is a tragedy or the job at hand is too large for one person or one family to bear.
