Dale Minyo and the crew of the Ohio Ag Net took a trip north on Tuesday for the first 2015 installment of Feeding Farmers in the Fields, sponsored by AgriGold Hybrids. Maple View Farms based in southern Erie County was the winner. The farm is run by Keith Edwards and two of his sons Kirk and Kent.
As far as their spring, Keith said it has been without much struggle compared to other years.
“We’ve had actually what we’d call a normal spring, which we haven’t had in many years,” said Keith. “It’s been a good spring.
“We are sidedressing. Spraying – we’ve got a little moratorium on that – we’re in between spraying time. And hay, as soon as we get a weather window we’re ready to cut hay, but we’re dry right now.”
The farm is in the process of transition from Keith to Kirk and Kent. Each have their own duties on the operation.
