Monks from the Shaolin Temple have been busy harvesting wheat from their farm. For monks, waving sickle can be like practicing kung fu. After going through processes of reaping, thrashing, bagging and loading, they also enjoy the process and season.

A total of 120 mu, equivalent to eight hectares, of farmland was planted with wheat this year, and the harvest will be expected to generate 50,000 kilograms of the plant. The grain will provide food for monks in the Shaolin Temple, as well as teachers and students in its school, with any extras being given to families in need.
