Weird Weather!

This year has had all kinds of odd weather and its only March! Its been 75 and sunny then 21 and snowing all in the same week. If you don't like the weather in Kentucky just wait a day or two and it will change! Here at SSF we are trying to prep the fields for planting corn. Here is the catch, we can't spray when its windy and we can't spray when its cold. So not alot anything is happening out in the fields.  We do have some cool pictures from the few days we have been able to spray! 

 

The End is Near!

We are well over half way finished harvesting soybeans! The 2016 harvest is almost over. We would like to thank everyone for all of their hard work and long hours! Check out these pictures of our 2016 soybean harvest.

Between Harvest

We have all been busy at Seven Springs Farms! We are now farming 35,000 acres spread across eight different counties. We harvested 10,000 acres of wheat in two weeks and planted all of our corn before the monsoons of 2016 came. Talk about a hard working group of people! Things have slowed down for the time being, and everyone has taken their well deserved vacations. Wheat is over but corn is just around the corner! Since our last post we have begun a new venture with Jolly Farm Beef, where we specialize in backgrounding calves. We also feed out a couple of calves and sell high choice freezer beef. Check us out at www.JollyBeefFarms.com. We also have invested in the Southern Springs Event Center and the Wallonia Cafe

Congratulations Hannah & Joe!

Joe and Hannah Gilland welcomed a baby boy, Oliver Gilland, on January 12th. Baby Oliver was born early and weighed only 2lb, 3.6oz.  Oliver has overcome a lot in the past month.  Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with Joe, Hannah, Oliver and their entire family as Oliver continues to grow and get stronger each day.
