Farming the Grand Canyon

In early April, Jodie and I had the opportunity to go to the Grand Canyon.  We had never even seen the Canyon before, but we were invited to take our youngest daughter, Faith, and go along with three other families to hike.  The asset that we had to take advantage of was that Aaron Wilson […]

Rain, Rain Go Away

  This is one of the latest starts to planting that I can remember. It’s a different feeling driving around the county at the beginning of May and not seeing a single piece of equipment in a given field. There is no doubt that we are eager to begin field work and are anxious to […]

The New Compost Turner on the Farm!

In the early 90s we began to consider the idea of using compost practices on our farm. At the time this was a very forward thinking practice to enhance land production. We entered an agreement with Perdue Farms to process their turkey litter from nearby locations in order to develop a compost mix. This idea […]

End of the Year 2018 Wrap Up

The bottom line is that we had a great year – with our all-time highest yields of both soybeans and corn. The last half of the season was a challenging one with rainy weather. Some corn stalk health was not so great, there were areas that fell over prematurely. It is a little more difficult […]

How can a few people standing in an Indiana farm field make a global impact?

God has a way of making things happen. We recently hosted our Farming God’s Way (FGW) conference here at Lamb Farms. This is the third year we’ve held the event and also the third year that Grant Dryden of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the founder of Farming God’s Way, has led the conference. Farming God’s […]

How the Crop Really Looks

If you’ve driven a country road lately, you’ve seen the tasseled corn and big, lush soybean plants. This has been an ideal growing season and many fields look ahead of schedule. As it appears now, yields will likely be above average, and it will be a banner year for farmers. That’s how things appear. The […]

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, […]
