HELENA – A Helena farm equipment business said producers tell them this fall’s harvest looks good.

Helena Farm Supply has worked with farmers in the Helena valley and surrounding communities for more than 70 years.

They said the wet spring and flooding made it difficult for some farmers to get into the field. However, they said the weather turned around and some farmers may get an extra harvest in.

After 71 years in business, Helena Farm Supply is as busy as ever.

Manager Becky Helfert- Wedll said, “It’s more than a job. It’s a lifestyle, and it’s a community, and were all in this together. So we’re very invested in our farmers. They’re our friends, they’re our neighbors, they’re people that we know, love, and have grown up and old with over the years.”

Farmers and companies like Helena Farm Supply are just as busy during the off season.

Winter can also give farmers and farming companies time to gear up for the new season and take on bigger projects.
