Amber Waves of Grain

If you’ve driven across Indiana these past days, you’ve probably seen a golden wheat field – just like those that inspired the line in America the Beautiful. A ready wheat field means it’s the peak of summer. To hard-working farm kids, it means a couple days on a wagon in the blazing sun stacking bales […]

Cultivating Patience

You can tell it’s spring – flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing and…farm equipment is on the move. Today’s farms are bigger and spread out further meaning there is probably a lot more equipment on the road today compared to years ago when farmers had smaller tracts of land. Farm equipment is bigger too, which […]

We’re Pretty Busy Waiting for Spring

It’s looking like this spring will be a lot like last year – cool and wet. While there’s not much we can do about the weather, we can do everything we can to be prepared once the sun comes out and the fields are ready for planting season. One of the main strategies recommended by […]

We’re Growing More than Crops

It’s still a bit chilly to think about gardening, but it’s been on our minds all winter. Now, gardening, isn’t quite the same as farming, but the simple act of planting a seed has the same result. AgriStewards has been consistently teaching farmers in developing countries about soil conservation and proper farming practices. In fact, […]

Indiana Crop Farming – It’s More Than Fuel and Feed.

In the summer, you don’t have to drive very far to see vast fields of corn and soybeans; the primary, commodity crop here in Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. What you can’t see is which crops are destined for fuel for your car fuel for animals, or fuel for your body. One type is considered a […]

A Ripple From Our Farm to Foreign Shores

Agriculture reinforces the effect of one small action growing into something bigger. Seeds are planted, and from that, there is a harvest, and more seeds. We’ve always been keenly aware of the role that our faith plays in our daily life and in our business, and we’ve worked to share that faith with others who […]

How’s the view? Bringing Drone Technology to the Farm

Drones are becoming both a popular toy and tool. The question for us is, can this technology do anything new for us as farmers? Three years ago, we purchased one of the more inexpensive drones just to get a feel for using it and to explore what it could do for us. It was rather […]

AgRecycle: it’s what can happen when you ask, what if?

It surprises a lot of people that our ag operation includes large-scale composting. What began as a one-time “gift” of turkey manure has grown into a thriving recycling company. Today, AgRecycle processes between 6-7000 tons of manure, corn by-products, food waste, grass clippings, leaves, and wood scrap. In the early 90s, Purdue Turkey Farms needed […]

It’s All About Our People

One constant about our farm is our continued growth, which wouldn’t be possible without a dedicated crew. When my father, Bob Lamb, (known as Ol’ Bob around here) began farming, he had one employee. Generations ago, a hired hand or two was always helpful, especially in the rush of planting or harvesting. Today, we’ve grown […]

Cover Crops: What’s the Payoff?

This season’s crop seems to be more high maintenance than other years, we are facing more rain, again, and windy days limit our spraying and other work. We’re fortunate that we have all our ground planted; there are some farmers who have been rained out several times and are trying to catch up. It’s years […]
