Farm Belt: Wheat, oats, hay, straw, alfalfa fields sweep like cresting waves across the rolling landscape of Sharon township. Of the township's 24,192 acres, 3,000 are sown in wheat and oats (light patches), and 2,170 in corn (darker squares). The township's 123 farms are operated by life-time farmers, who are descendants of pioneers, and city-bred farmers, who are Johnny-come-latelies on the Sharon farm scene.
