(SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan.) — At a time when farmers are harvesting their fields; Saturday, many near Derby are working just one.
"I didn't bring my machine so I said I will help whatever way I can," says Larry Walker.
Larry Walker may have left his combine at home but fifteen others are already rolling out.
"He wouldn't be surprised because he knows all the neighbors around herem" says Walker.
He is the man named on everyone's t-shirts. Sixty-eight year old Larry Farber died of cancer in February, four months before the crop he planted was ready to harvest.
So neighbors, friends and family are picking up what farber didn't get the chance to finish.
"He is the one who planted it all and took care of it all and so we're taking care of it for him," says Michelle Kelley.
Larry Farber's six-hundred acres of wheat will be harvested in just one day and his daughter says that is just the way he would have done it.
"Get it done, get it done, get it done," says Kelley.
And it's a good thing it is getting done. Kelley says it would have taken her family several weeks to harvest all the wheat.
"Weather is the biggest issue and if you have a big hail storm and it knocks down the wheat it's going to be detrimental," says Kelley.
Saturday's harvest will be hauled to an elevator and later sold.
One last harvest for Farber, a life long farmer who left an impression as big as his wheat fields.
"I believe that he is smiling down. Smiling on everybody that is here," says Kelley.
