Happenings From The Farm
One Chance to Plant
Because of the severity of the weather patterns we face, our planting window is often short adding urgency to our work. Too much rain and we may find ourselves spending days or weeks out of our fields due to muddy ground. Each day shortening the already short growing season. In essence, we have one chance to plant.
A Necessary Process
Pest management is a hot topic in todays society, people often find themselves standing firmly to one side of the other. As farmers, we understand the importance of pest management and risk management when tending to our crop. To us, pest management is a necessary process and after all, we sit down at night with our families and eat the same food you do.
A Time to Reap
When all that can be done to produce a crop has come and gone, it is a time to reap. We look forward each fall to harvesting the fruits of our labor. The summer spent tending and nurturing our crop comes down to this one grand event; Harvest.
We Get Stuck
We face stuck tractors and combines on an all too often basis in the Red River Valley of North Dakota. Our heavy clay soils not only produce magnificent crops but difficult farming conditions. Heavy rains during the spring or fall can cause some serious headaches.
Beaver Dams Cause Issues
Beaver dams can cause significant issues on the farm. When coulee’s and creeks are dammed, water can back up into our fields causing crop loss. When prices are tight, every acre counts. What’s an adequate solution for two beaver dams in your field? 40lbs of Tannerite!
