With the retirement of Robert in 1963, the dairy operation ceased.  However, he continued to raise grains and hay for a number of years.  Since the early 1970's, his son Bob has increased the cash crop business to include oats, barley, buckwheat, and hay.  We grew high-moisture corn for a number of years.  However, our sandy soils with low fertility and our high elevation (1424 feet) with a relatively cool climate is more suited to small grains.

We currently grow approximately 40 acres of oats, 40 acres of barley, 50 acres of soybeans, 10 acres of buckwheat, and about 40 acres of hay.  Some of our barley straw is sold to use as a control for grasses in ponds.
