 Taking a Soil Sample

  It is very important you test your soil each year.  With the cost of fertilizer remaining high, a soil test can save you money on the farm.  It's best if multiple samples are taken for the area you want tested.  You will need to go about 4-6 inched underneath grass and mix in a bucket per sample. Stop by the office and pick up your soil bags or bring us about 2 cups per sample in a ziploc bag. The cost is $7.00 per sample. Generally we can get soil test back in about 10 days.
