Harvest time in fly-over country

Anyone who lives in the High Plains probably considers himself or herself to be in fly-over country. But the property that Doug Kemp manages is literally fly-over country, where the rumble and roar of jet engines shakes the ground and makes normal conversation almost impossible. Over 380 times a day jets fly over the largest land owner in Platte County, Mo. The land owner is Kansas City International Airport.

Doug Kemp, an accredited farm manager with Farm Management Associates, Inc., began overseeing the land around KCI in the fall of 1999. Kansas City, Mo., owns approximately 10,000 acres where the airport is located. Approximately 2,000 acres are inside the fence that contains the air operations area (AOA).
