Farming MYTH- You are harming the environment and only care about money . Farming FACT- While yes this is our way of living and providing for our families, we do want to be profitable. But a sad reality is most are or have struggled . Farmers work hard to leave the environment better than we found it: . 🌲 We plant trees and remove dead ones yearly! Yep every year at our homestead dead trees are taken out and replaced with new baby ones! Did you know on tree can produce enough oxygen for 4 people a year . 🚜 We are a no till operation; meaning we till or move the soil as little as possible. Leaving the carbon in the ground and lessening the footprint we leave for climate change! Less fuel, less time and more efficient for our soil type, dry climate and operation . 🌱 We use the amazing technology of GMO seeds when we plant. Why GMO? Well they offer disease resistance, insect resistance and also drought and herbicide tolerances! All great things for our farm financially and physically for the crop to grow to its best, healthiest potential . 💦 By keeping residue in our fields we are preventing erosion and water runoff when we irrigate and when it rains. If you haven’t seen my fun video on no till vs conventional till for our area, I highly suggest it . 🐮 In the winter Barts families Angus cattle graze our corn stalks to remove any excess corn that had fallen off the plant or wasn’t all picked up by our combine! This helps with any volunteer corn issues because they eat a large majority of it up off the ground for us. Also their manure is a great form of nitrogen and really good for the soil. Fun fact- we also have a manure spreader we run in the winter. We use ranch families cattle and horse manure and spread it on our ground to have it Incorporated with the winter snows or spring rains . 🌽 So many other amazing an useful environmental things we farm and ranch families do to preserve the land, to take care and give back what was depleted from the soil . /FARMERS ARE MY KINDA PEOPLE\ Sustainable, caring, families doing hard work to feed the world . Did you know 1 single farmer produces enough food to feed 155 people⬅️⬅️ it’s a fact jack!

One for the bucket list! I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face with this one!! The J.H. Manchester Round Barn was built in 1908 and is the largest round barn east of the Mississippi River with its 102 ft. diameter and 88 ft. height. In 1865, Jason Manchester migrated from Vermont when he was 12 years old with his parents, taking over 500 acres of unfarmed land. His father improved the land and was owner of 1,000 acres when he died. Today, the family is a multi-generation business founded on the values of innovation, excellence, and stewardship. They grow specialty grains for human consumption that include popcorn, soybeans, and other NON GMO grains. The barn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980; the Manchester family still owns and maintains the property. : : : : : #ag365 #agdaily #farmsnaps #barnlove #barns #be_one_rural #barnsofinstagram #country_features #explore_countryside #renegade_rural #trb_rural #ig_america_rural #ig_ruralamerica #ig_countryside #hdr_country #rurallife #rural_love #ipulledoverforthis #raw_country #ig_rural #total_rural #farmphotography #farmphotographydaily #farmlife #oldbarnlove #ohio #ohiobarns #buckeyes #forgottenbarns
