    Multiflora Rose

    Hay Acres ?

    We have a two year plan to put about 150 acres back to grass/pollinators/NWSG on our property. Highly erodible land or marginally stuff that never should have been put into cultivation by lease farmers. That’s what happened when corn hit almost $8 years ago.

    Max price on a Bull for commercial use

    First time I've purchased from Quaker Hill. Bulls seem to be enjoying their heifers since turn out a few days ago. We will see about their longevity. One was a little more conditioned than I would have liked but again I thought he was great for the price. Most of my herd bulls are from Knoll...
