BIG FIELD PROJECT

2017 Harvest Date: Sat, October 7th
back up date: October 14tH

In our traditional 150 acre "Big Field"  Project our corporate sponsors generously provide us with crop inputs and our directors and volunteer farmers donate equipment and labour to seed the crop and provide any other field operations required . 

The highlight of the year is the harvest day when we typically have a dozen combines operating along with grain carts and grain trucks. Friends, neighbours, and supporters gather to enjoy a BBQ,  share news about the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and its activities  and to celebrate the harvest. The combines start rolling with the wave of a Canadian flag and the harvest is quickly completed.  The crop is sold with the proceeds forwarded  to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB).

A big thanks to our sponsors
