Corn Harvest is Here!

Corn harvest has commenced! This means long hours and working saturdays to get all 14,000 acres harvested. We will be on the roads alot this time of year. Everytime we move equipment safety is our priority. Please be patient with us and we will let you around when we can. Check out these great pictures from the Weirstein farm in Caldwell county!

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.
