This picture is another example of farmers being an environmentalist. The phrase reduce, reuse and recycle comes to mind. Mike, a coworker here at the studio, saw this picture and he thought I would like to see it. He knew I was a farmer and would know what a grain bin was and what it was normally used for. I will say this is the first time I have seen a grain bin turned into a bar rather than a structure to store corn and beans.

I suspect this grain bin bar is on a farm that has a remodeled barn or other structure for hosting weddings, graduation open houses and other events. This looks like a grain bin that would hold 500 bushels of grain, much too small these days to be useful. So instead of selling the steel to a salvage yard, what an idea to turn it into a covered bar. It certainly fits the theme of having your event on a farm.
