Row upon row of beans that can grow as high as 6 feet tall !  the harvest was 1045 bushels !  The price to be determined... the difference made to people in Ethiopias lives is priceless !   They are amazed that Canadians are willing to help so much in this way !

Prime Time at the Van B's


This is prime time ! at the Van B's 

 

 The Van B's got that canola growing great this year !  Everything worked out great !   They produced  43 bu per acre which beat canola yields in the Prairies with the  extremes we had in moisture this season... plus .... we have seldom had these sweet of prices in the fall for canola !    That make for a nice combination !    The put that with the great combination of Tearfund and the CFGB and the Canadian Government and 2150 bu goes a long way to fighting hunger and bettering the lives of those in rural Ethiopia in these crazy times ... thanks to the Van B's the real farmers and thanks to the virtual farmers paying for so many of the input costs !
