Farmer’s field to loaf record gets Guinness nod


Table of Contents:

  • How long does it take to harvest wheat and bake 13 loaves of bread? Ask Guinness and farmer Neil Unger.

“The huge worry we had … if we’d have had a thunderstorm or rain the day before, it was all over. It’s one of those things that there was a hell of a lot of luck involved, like it didn’t rain from harvest to our attempt, which I’ve never seen before.”

Unger’s time is now official: After he submitted video and affidavits and waited months for a world record nod, Guinness declared Unger as the new record holder in October.

And where from here for Unger?

“The record we have is for the team event … I have found out there is a second record which is a singular event, whereas one person does everything. I’ve got to get the details on that.

See below for a video of Unger and his team setting the field to loaf record.
