However his own farm is harvested as neighbours, friends & family (4) wasted no time stepping as many as support finish the job.

About 60 farmers in Divide County put their own harvesting on hold to support the Unhjems, utilizing all their own own equipment.

“I talked to a couple of farmers, got (1) their own equipment, & afterwards different citizens just initiated calling & we’d equipment offered from all over the place within the county, & their own labour to go with it,” family (4) friend Jenna Binde informed KFYR.

The crowd utilized 11 combines, 6 grain carts & 15 tractor-trailers to finish harvesting Unhjem’s Durum wheat & canola. Utilizing the power of society, they harvested 1,000 acres in 7 hours.
