Area farmers gathered on Friday to donate their time, effort, and equipment in support of the Canadian Food Grains Bank.
In Rosenfeld, 5 combines came to harvest 150 acres of soybeans. Money from the harvest will be donated to the project known as CHUM, Communities Helping Undernourished Millions.
Spokesperson Isaac Froese said he is expecting a yield of 30 bushels per acre, and believes the quality to be good.
"The pods that I've cracked open, they look pretty good... the seeds will be smaller but the quality in general will still be fine," he said.
"We went in wet this spring and so yes, the seeding was a bit of a problem, nothing too serious, but we got it done and then we had a very heavy rain on it shortly afterwards so for a while we thought they might be drowning out, but they made it through that and things are looking decent," Froese added.
Froese was very grateful for the volunteer effort, noting that many farmers are still working on their own fields.
He estimates the CHUM project will be able to donate around $45,000 to the Canadian Food Grains Bank.
In Arnaud, farmers also brought 5 combines together to harvest the 160 acres of soybeans at the project field known as HOPE, short for Helping Other People Eat.
Jeremy Calder, chairman of the HOPE committee, says the field yielded 26 bushels per acre.
