Who We Are
Using No-Till as a farming method, we use different cover crops to achieve different results. Cover crops can be very diversified, we have used several mixes on our farm at different seeding rates to get optimum results to pass along to our customers.
Farming is a constantly changing profession that need flexible open minded vendors to help stay up with the changes that farmers face daily. THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE!!!
Not are we only passionate about our farming we are also passionate about growing trophy deer. While experimenting with different cover crop blends we have found different blends the Whitetail deer love! We have decided to share this with the world in our Wildlife seed.
This business officially opened in February of 2016, but actually started years ago. We have been actively involved in agriculture as far back as any family member can remember. In the last 30 years it came more as a profession than a way of life. By profession I mean growing cash crops to sell. No-till farming was beginning to catch on in the mid 70's, saving time and fuel. It came and went to most farms, being tagged as a fad.
Again, in the 80's it came back, again it never established itself on many farms because as long as anyone could remember land had to be plowed to grow crops. Extensive research had been going on all this time, and successful no-till farms were thriving. Our farm adopted the practice in the 90's. With over 30 soil types it didn't look as if it was going to work for us. Yields were lagging after the first year, and wasn't improving. Little did we know we were on the threshold of a successful venture when we walked away from no-till again.
At the turn of the century our farm was growing, time and labor was a big factor. Again no-till was adopted, but this time with a "program".. We were determined to give these farms at least four years to prove or deny the practice. Research showed to make no-till work the soil needed something growing on it 365 days a year, In our program a cover crop was adopted. back then it usually consisted of bin run wheat, and maybe some rye. Though simple, it seemed to help adopt the practice. Cover crop use became more extensive, mixes made by using legumes to help supply nitrogen. The transition was a success! More and more acres were adopted, and by 2010 we were 100% no-till.. Today we still are 100% no-till, and are fighting herbicide resistant weeds. We have found the best chemical in the arsenal is our cover crops! Nothing grows good in competition, so we have developed several blends of seed to fight different weeds!
