Fall harvest bountiful at Michels Family Farm

The brightly colored pumpkins and gourds scattered across a wagon in Jeff Michels’ barn signify a bumper fall harvest and the changes in Owen County’s rural history.
Like many Owen countians, Michels once grew tobacco, but said the increasing cost of fertilize and other supplies drove him to another venture.
“I’d rather pick up pumpkins than cut tobacco any day,” Michels said. “And its turned out to be a pretty darn good year for pumpkins.”
