Happy Holidays!

by donna.geswein@gmail.com on December 5, 2012

We are so thrilled to be finished with the 2012 harvest!  What a year it has been!  Yields ended up being pretty much what we expected considering the severe drought we experienced.  So we count ourselves lucky to have good crop insurance and we eagerly move onto 2013.

November turned out to be great weather for getting fertilizer spread and getting some fall drainage projects completed.  We recently purchased a tile plow that we feel is going to be a great asset to us and our landowners.  It’s a very interesting process to watch.  I included a video below to give you an idea of what we are up to.  Another big project we completed this week was Indiana’s first bioreactor which we installed on our farm near Romney.    This was a project through NRCS.  A bioreactor is basically a huge filter.   The existing field  tile is tied  into the bioreactor which is filled with wood chips.  The wood chips  filter  out any nitrates before it empties into waterway.  It was an exciting project to be a part of.

We want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy holiday season!  We continue to count our blessings as we are so fortunate to work with such great landowners, employees, processors, and suppliers.

From our family to yours … MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
