The 2019 Farm Progress Show in Decatur Illinois is the largest outdoor farm show in the United States. Our family farm attends the event every time it is hosted in Decatur. The highlight of the day includes watching field demos and learning about the latest technology and startups within the agriculture industry. Check out a few pics below from the event.
It has been one of the wettest Springs ever remembered resulting in a delayed planting season. We were blessed to have the skies clear up this past week even when the forecast was calling for rain. This allowed us enough time to get the 2019 crop in the ground and we wish for another bountiful harvest. Check out some pictures below from the planting season.
