Thousands of people in Bulloch County depend on agriculture. So some gathered Friday morning before another harvest begins.

They gathered to pray during the second annual Blessing of the Harvest. It brings together farmers, bankers and others among the 3,000 Bulloch Countians who work directly or indirectly in agriculture.

Farmers who took part Friday morning say none of them do it alone.

"We can do everything start to finish, from preparing the soil, adding fertilizer, getting the PH level right, planting seeds. But if we don't have the rain and the sunshine at the right times, it's all for naught,” said David Cromley, farmer.

Agriculture accounts for nearly $400 million of Bulloch County's economy.
