Very productive past week for us on the farm. We were able to finish the last bit of soybeans, complete all our corn sidedressing and replant all ponds where the corn was drown out. Spraying a post-application on corn has just begun.
Spring planting is near completion! The past few weeks have provided ideal growing conditions for crops… warm weather and rainfall is a wonderful combination. All our corn can be “rowed” in the field, and the plant stand and color is good. Saturday night, we recieved 1.25″ of rain in the Macon/Christian County area… the location […]
Wonderful week on the farm! We’re please to share that the 2014 corn crop has been planted, and roughly 20% has now shot through the soil to the surface. Recent rainfall and the upcoming warm weather should assist in the crop’s growth. Although no soybeans have been planted, a preplant burndown has been applied to 75% of the […]
Old Man Winter refuses to loosen his grasp, but we continue to edge closer to spring. We experienced a couple days of 60 degree weather, which was followed by snow! Our shop remodel is now complete, and the iron rack, shelving and hose reels were put back together over the weekend. Currently, Dennis is finishing the corn planter… […]

We’ve began hauling limestone to locations for fall application. Although well in advance of the spreading, we’re taking a proactive approach to sourcing our product […]
We are pleased to share that the 1st newsletter of 2014 is now available on the Newsletters page within the site! Current activities include hauling corn to market and liquid fertilizer into our storage facility. The weather has been cold, and the warmth of a semi’s cab never sounded so appealing! We anticipate delivering our seedbeans […]
Cold temperatures and snow continue throughout our area. Over the past few winters, we have been fortunate to avoid single-digit temps and large snow events, but the beginning of 2014 has reminded us of good ‘ol Midwest winter weather. We have continued to haul corn on contract to the Decatur processors. Our shop project is moving forward […]
The weather this winter has already produced more snowfall than the past few years combined. Although the snow and ice has been challenging, the conditions have produced excellent “quick-ship” opportunities for delivering grain to the processors in Decatur. On three different occasions, we have scurried to deliver as much as possible over short periods of time. The weather has disrupted […]
