Farmers in Canada make heartwarming gesture to help neighbour
Neighbours of a Manitoba farmer came to his crop's rescue while his daughter was in the hospital recovering after being hit by a car.
On Wednesday, Rob Harms shared a sweet story on Twitter in honour of his fellow farmers who harvested a days' worth of his crops in just a few hours while he and his wife were taking care of their daughter.
In the tweet, Harms explained that his daughter was struck by a vehicle while out for a run and that his wife had been spending almost every moment at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg where their daughter was healing from a head injury.
A week ago our daughter went for a run She was hit by a vehicle. In HSC with head injuries. Her mother hardly left her all week. Yesterday friends and neighbours showed up and combined 500 ac of soybeans in 4.5 hrs. Tomorrow I get to bring her home I am overwhelmed #Thanksgiving pic.twitter.com/wDPNVSGxKN— Rob Harms (@Robsworld65) October 8, 2020
In true neighbourly fashion, Harms' friends showed up at his farm where they combined an impressive 500 acres of soybeans in a mere four and a half hours.
Now that's a lot of soybeans in such a short amount of time.
With only a couple days to go until Thanksgiving, Harms added that he is overwhelmed with his neighbours' generosity and the fact that he gets to bring his daughter home just before the holiday.
Unsurprisingly, many online were touched by the heartwarming story.

"In today's messed up world, it's so heartening to see such acts of kindness. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Wishing you and your family well and hoping for a speedy recovery for your daughter," another Twitter user added.
Farming communities are pretty food at looking after each other, the world as a whole should be more like that. I hope the girl makes a full recovery 🙏— Farming (@nicholasavery) October 8, 2020
