harvesting Hope 2016

Congratulations team Motherwell Homestead!

Guinness World Record Holders!

It’s official! July 28-31 2016 team Motherwell joined the Manitoba Agricultural Museum’s Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion & Stampede in Austin, Manitoba. As part of this spectacular week they were proud to be a part of the Harvesting Hope: A world record to help the hungry, in which a Guinness World Record was set for the most threshing machines threshing at the same time.

Machines needed to be built before 1953, and had to thresh for 15 minutes continually to qualify.75 acres of wheat were threshed by 139 tractor/ threshing machine combinations with the grain collected going to World Food Grains charity. The previous record was set last year with 111 machines stepping up to the task.

Thank you especially to Sheldon and our volunteer team who not only spent the time preparing the equipment for the event, hauling the precious cargo to Austin, but also for being the ‘official crew’ and support team needed to make this happen. Without you it wouldn’t have been possible! Wally Neuman, Wilson Family Farms & Dan Clarke, Baillie Boys Towing, Jim Mann, Brian Wilkes and your families of helpers!
