Joe Reed of Old Mansfield Road still does it that way with the help of two Percheron horses and a wagon.FREDERICKTOWN — It's harvest time and all around the county one can travel down the country roads and see great machines rolling through the fields cutting huge swaths in the rows of corn or whatever else the farmer is harvesting. In Knox County, it is mostly corn.
