My name is Tracy Zeorian. My titles include Wife (and business partner) to Jim since 1982, Mother to four amazingly strong women and Grandma to three little people who have completely stolen my heart.
I am a third generation custom harvester who cares deeply about telling my story. The custom harvesting industry is one segment of Ag that most people know nothing about. I created this blog for you – to follow our journey and go where we go. To learn what a custom harvester is and to experience the challenges we go through to get food on your table.
My grandparents began this gypsy-way-of-life in 1951. My harvest story began in 1972 while tagging along with my Grandpa and Grandma for the first time. I met Jim the summer of 1975 (he hired on with their crew) and I married him in 1982. We never intended on being custom harvesters…God had a different plan. I desperately love to drive combine and could sit in the seat day after day after day after day after…
I believe God should be first, family second and our job comes last. I hate the word impossible and will go to great lengths to prove truth and justice. I tend to trust people way more than I should (until they prove otherwise). I wish I was witty and funny. I believe my sole purpose is to help people whenever and however I can. The experiences I have had – both good and bad – have made me who I am today.
