Approximately 60 neighbours stepped in to help a farmer - who is battling stage 4 skin cancer – to harvest crops on his farm recently.
Larry Yockey’s 1,200-acre enterprise is located in Ritzville, Washington; the 63-year-old can no longer work in his fields due to his illness.
In a post on Facebook, Longhorn Barbecue said: “When fellow farmers in Adams County found out, they got to work organising a harvest for the fourth-generation farmer.”
“The neighbours did three weeks’ worth of work in just six hours as Yockey, his wife and their three daughters looked on in awe.”
“Turns out Larry Yockey had a bumper crop of good neighbours in the heart of wheat country.”
