Planting Time

It’s that time of year again: when we plant the wheat and soybeans on our farm! And farmers around the region are planting those plus corn, barley, sugarbeets, potatoes, sunflowers, canola, cover crops and many more! It’s so exciting.

Get a Load of This…

Exciting news: our family is growing again and our little man is going to be a BIG BROTHER! It has been so much fun watching our first little person grow through his first year (also very busy). We are looking forward to his continued development and stepping into the role of being a little (at…
