Great American Wheat Harvest

Your Great American Wheat Harvest team reminds you to give thanks for all the harvesters in the field! Because of the freedoms we enjoy as a nation, people from all over the world can come here to help harvest our nation’s wheat crop. Americans, Canadians, British, Irish, Australians, South Africans, and many others are all working together to bring in the harvest. What an amazing country we have! As you eat, take the time to thank God for our freedom, and then take the time to thank a farmer and harvester!

Film Documentarian James Moll Releases “Farmland”

Oscar®-winning documentary filmmaker, James Moll, has unveiled the trailer and website for his latest film, Farmland. The feature length documentary follows the next generation of American farmers and ranchers, examining the lives of farmers and ranchers in their 20s, in various regions across the US. The movie trailer and information about the film is available at www.farmlandfilm.com.

“I make documentaries because it’s a thrill to explore new topics and meet people that I might not otherwise cross paths with,” said Moll. “While making Farmland, I found myself immersed in a community of some of the most hard working, passionate people I’ve ever met. This film isn’t just about what it’s like to be a farmer, it’s about a way of life. It’s also about a subject that affects our lives daily.” Farmland premiered nationwide in spring 2014.

The film, made with generous support from the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance® (USFRA®), gives viewers a firsthand glimpse into the lives of these young farmers and ranchers, their high-risk/high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that, more often than not, is passed down from generation to generation.

The farmers of Saskatchewan set a Guinness World Record for the most combines harvesting in a single field. A total of 249 combines rolled down the field together to bring in a Guinness World Record harvest in front of thousands of spectators. The effort raises greater awareness of grain production, harvesting and distribution of a common food supply between Canada and the United States. The benefit supports Harvest For Kids, a Canadian-based, nonprofit organization, focuses on creating sustainable community development programs that help bring hope to children in the developing world.
