Charity Farms is a combined effort of many volunteer community residents from the beginning of each spring with seeding, spraying, swathing and the final day of harvest and loading the grain into the bins for sale. There is a sigh of relief and gratitude when the grain is in the bins and always many thanks to be said for all the different helping hands that are involved each year with Charity Farms project.
