Prior to 2009 we produced a rather standard mix of crops; across the 300 – 400 acres (owned and rented), we grew corn, wheat, barley, hay and soybeans.
In 2009 we made a conscious decision to try to capture niche income by varying our crop plans. In the spring of that year we planted Identity Preserved Soybeans, Round Up Ready Soybeans, Hard Red Spring Wheat, Malting Barley and Canola.
Sunflowers are the crop we grow as much out of love as for an income stream.
People flock to photograph our fields every year.
