NGC introduces the King Colony and their way of life. Today, unlike their ancestors, they have sophisticated farming equipment, and are constantly evolving and struggling to find balance yet preserve their treasured traditions. Harvest is the most important time of year for the Hutterite colony. The Hutterite men are disappointed that their cows are underweight and won't bring in as much income this year, but despite the setback, the colony prepares for its annual Harvest Party.
