Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from all of us at Johnson Family Farms!  What a wonderful fall it has been with warmer than normal temperatures and almost zero rainfall.  We have been busy doing dirt work outside on various farms, cleaning up fall harvest and tillage equipment and hauling grain from our bins to the Illinois River.  

We were very blessed again this year with high yields and good health. We have many other blessings to be thankful for this past year including all our employees and suppliers that make our business successful.  We look forward to higher prices and more timely and adequate rainfall in 2018!

Mold board plows have been sold and are heading to a new home at a local organic farm where they will use them to plow under cover crops as "green manure."

Building a new terrace on the Dunlap Young farm.
Rebuilding the terrace on the Mears Land Trust in Greenfield. After several multiple inch rains that topped the terrace it eventually wore down the terrace in places and the dirt needed to be moved back.
