Six generations of farmers dating back to early 1850s in Central Illinois including Effingham, Shelby, and Fayette counties. Mr. Dan McKay and his four sons continue the family business with a passion for their profession. McKay Farms, headquartered in Beecher City, IL, created this blog to share their experiences and create awareness for hard working farmers!

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.
We successfully planted all of our corn for the 2018 season as of May 2nd. We were lucky enough to have only a few minor breakdowns and a couple flat tires during the corn planting season. We will be taking the next couple days off due to the rain showers but hope to continue with beans as soon as possible. Check out some pictures of the corn planting season.
