First Organic Corn Harvest

It was a huge accomplishment for us this year to obtain organic certification, plant, cultivate, harvest and deliver our first organic grain. As always, it was a steep learning curve and some “lessons learned” but overall a successful year. We were pleased with the improvement in the quality of our soil and the quality of our crop. We also managed to drill a late season organic wheat cover crop which will be crucial in early spring weed control. In 2020 we plan to plant organic soybeans and are hoping to do chickens again and maybe even a few pigs….don’t tell anyone tell Katie yet. 🙂
