Field of Teams

On July 31 at 4:00pm, more than 600 volunteers worked in teams to operate 125 vintage threshing machines in an effort to set a new World Record for “most threshing machines operating simultaneously.”

The machines ran for 20 minutes and were driven by antique engines built as early as 1890.

The massive effort required over four football field of space. Proceeds from this special event supported the important efforts of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to fight hunger in the developing world.
