Sunshine, Sweet Sunshine!

The sun is shining!!!! It might be raining tomorrw but today is perfect! Planter repairs are just about completed and we are ready to start anhydrous application and planting. Spring is all about planning here at SSF. Lots of meetings are happening, lots of list are being made and lots of things are being repaired. Once anhydrous starts it will be petal to the metal straight thru to harvest.  

Seven Springs Farms Safety Day

We had a great turn out this year for Safety Day! Over 150 farmers and firefighers came out to learn about safety on the farm. We had speakers on grain bin safety, grain quality, grain rescue, and an awesome lunch! Pork Chops were provided by Pioineer. Oh man, were they good! Sides and dessert were provided by the Harper House. We also had two sprayer certification classes after lunch! If you missed out this year and want to come next year it is always the first Wednesday after the Farm Machinery Show.

Gatton is on floor cleaning duty before everyone arrives!

You can't go wrong with chocolate chip cookies and banana pudding!

 

Baked beans and the best hashbrown cassareole ever! I didn't get a picutre of the pork chops but they were cooked to perfection! Thanks Harper House and Pioneer!

Well the ground hog said 6 more weeks of winter! Everyone at SSF is thankful for the floor heat in the shop and our space heaters in the office! The Spray guys did manage to get a little bit of spraying in this past week before the ground thawed out. Our truckers are still busy delivering grain and we still have shop guys working on repairing equipment. Our Greenhouse is also getting a facelift before spring arrives.  Farming at SSF chuggs along thru the winter and then its pedal to the metal from planting untill July!  It is safe to say everyone here is ready to trade Jack Frost for green grass, planting, and warmer weather!
