We are 4th Generation farmers of a family farm that started in 1887. We have been Direct Seeding since the middle 1990’s.
It’s all about soil erosion—it’s the only way to control it in a crop production system in a highly erodible land.
It’s another marketing opportunity, with specific customers, and it makes sense since we are already doing direct seeding. We recognize and appreciate the potential market available, and that people are willing to pay for a product that is Identity Preserved. We are logistically set up to efficiently market into the milling process and this is a great domestic marketing opportunity.
Working with Shepherd’s Grain is an opportunity to service our wheat to a market that desires it within this region.
