Hello! My name is Kylee DeBock with DeBock Harvesting our business is in Mutual, OK.
I have enjoyed all the recent journal entries from all the HarvestHER writers. I am not much of a writer so probably won’t hear from me daily, but would like to share an occasional post or picture.
Here is the background information on our company. My husband Dillon went on a harvest crew in 2003 with a crew from Minnesota. After Dillon returned home from the summer harvest run, he started his junior year of college at Oklahoma State University where he graduated in 2006 with an Ag business degree and a minor in finance! The crew that Dillon harvested with saw a great opportunity with Dillon. The owner was ready to retire and stay home on his Minnesota dairy farm. We leased all of the previous owners equipment and in 2004, we embarked on our first harvest season.
Honestly, I am not sure how we got one single job! We were all so young. Dillon, myself, and JW (family friend Dillon grew up with) were only 21. Dillon’s brother, Laramie, was 18, Chuck (also family friend) was 16 and Dillon’s youngest brother, Casey, was 14! (Casey’s wife, Kortney, is also writing journal entries for HarvestHER. Her entries are a must read as she is a very talented writer) Yep, I’d say we were still wet behind the ears, for sure…but here it is 13 years later and we are still going strong.
Dillon and I were married in October of 2004. We have two amazing boys, Colston 8 and Riggin 4! Colston is ate up with harvest just like his daddy! He has been going to the field every day since age 3. Just this week he started running the grain cart, the video is of him and Dillon dumping on the go! Pretty impressive, I think, for an 8 year old! We are sure PROUD of him and his hard work!
Riggin is my sweet, tenderhearted boy. He is easy going; so he is fine at the field or running errands with me. We are truly blessed to have two happy, healthy boys that we get to spend the summer with making AMAZING family memories that will last a life time!!
I would like to say THANK YOU to all the hard working farmers and harvesters out there! Without you, we’d all go hungry. Feeding the world one acre at a time!! Happy Harvesting everyone!
