Since August 23rd, we have harvested roughly 7,000 acres spread over 250 miles. That's about 95 acres every single day. During that time we also hauled an average of 10 truckloads out of the field every day, put 650 truckloads through augers, grain legs, bins, and grain bags, and delivered 100 loads to customers spread from Alabama to Wisconsin. Plus Michael planted 2,600 acres of small grains. All this was done safely and done well! As Brian said, "2016 is (almost) in the books." Great work everybody! Thank you and enjoy your weekend!

It has been another busy week at Walnut Grove Farms. We began hauling and stockpiling lime for fall application and are still finishing grain dryer maintenance. It looks like corn harvest will start considerably earlier this year thanks to the hot dry weather. Stephanie, Don & Sam attended a Family Farm Transition workshop as part of the KY Corn Growers CORE program. Also, on the agenda was a visit to UK's Princeton Research Farm and agronomy instruction from 3 UK professors. A very interesting trip!

From a mild winter into an early spring, both winter and spring crops progressed at an extremely accelerated pace this year. All was well until freezing temps moved in April 11th and 12th which was devastating to the wheat that was flowering at that time.
The early spring led to a grain harvest and double crop bean planting approximately two weeks ahead of normal. The corn crop has pollinated and most double crop beans have emerged but the current dry conditions across the Midwest has many farmers including ourselves worried with the outcome of the corn and soybean harvest.
