Video: Comedy Host Helps on a Wheat Harvest.

Oct 29, 2014

Very funny video of Wheat Harvest

Rick Mercer, host of the comedy show The Rick Mercer Report, and his crew spent 10 hours during the harvest season with the Banack family in Alberta, learning about their family operation, the wheat harvest, as well as the large pieces of machinery used in the process. Although Mercer’s show is based around comedy, he uses his platform to educate his audience about important issues, including where food comes from.

“I’m always amazed when people don’t give much thought to where their food comes from, so I was thrilled to be able to show people this type of farming operation. Anything I can do to help there, I’m very excited about,” said Mercer about his experience on the Banack farm.
