A Successful 2021 Harvest Season!

 Wow! 2021 was the 4th wettest October in the history of Illinois since 1895 but that didn't stop a great harvest season. It was a bumper crop that we will remember for years to come. Enjoy the great pictures of our year below!

Still Busy After Harvest

We have been busy with fall tillage, mowing around all fields and making as many improvements as possible during the past month and half. Time seems to be moving faster every year and we are excited to be back in the fields before we know it.

Plant 2019 wraps up after rainy Spring

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.

McKay Farms completes successful Harvest 2018

Harvest 2018 is complete bringing a bountiful harvest to McKay Farms in Beecher City, Illinois. The 2018 Harvest produced the highest yields and took many helping hands to complete. We were fortunate to capture the wonderful harvest season with many photographs and hope to share with you our moments over the upcoming months. We will continue to work on fall tillage before the heavy rains come in the upcoming weeks.
