There’s a new video out for
kids that is going to turn some
heads. The video, “Tractors, Com
bines and Things On The Grow”
was produced by Cockeysville
resident Patti Schindler. The first
video in a series she plans to pro
duce with her new company, “Just
Our Size Videos”, Mrs.
Schindler’s video shows how
farms work, from seed to feed.
“Tractors, Combines and
Things On The Grow” takes the
viewer on an amazing journey,
from the grocery store, into the
field, to show just how our food is
grown and produced. Kids will be
amazed by the fast-growing corn
scene that was provided by Media
Resources Center at lowa State
University. Shot with time lapse
photography, it shows how corn
evolves over the course of its
growing season. Large portions
were filmed on a Lippy Brothers
Farm, showing how a combine
works, with views from the field,

inside the cab of the combine and
with incredible footage of the
inside workings of a combine
showing the machine stripping
com from the cob. The video tape
also shows kids how soy beans
and green beans are picked and
shipped. Crop transportation footage
was provided by Archer-Daniels-
Midland with shots of trucks
dumping their wares at feed mills,
grain elevators, trains and the
ships that carry farm produced
foods to other parts of the world.
One scoop dumping grain into a
ship is as big as a small house!
From the farm, to the factory,
this video also makes a stop at a
large factory bakery where close
up shots show how wheat is
ground into flour, then made into
large rolls of dough, then into
loaves of bread. The joupney,
which follows a farmer’s produce
through to the end product, is not
just fascinating to kids. Patti
Schindler says “A lot of adults
who watch the film say, T didn’t
know that!’ about parts of it!”
Mrs. Schindler lives on eight
acres just outside of Baltimore.
She says they own a few horses
and lease a pony for her four-year
old son, Blake.
“Blake was the inspiration for
the video,” says this stay-at-home
mom. “Having a child at home, I
see how often kids sit down to
watch a video. Blake loves tractors
