What's Happening at Powell Grain Farms, Inc.?


HARVEST 2017

Happy Fall Y'all!! We are busy at work and as long as mother nature continues to

cooperate we will continue to move along steadily. Many of you have seen us in

your fields already harvesting the crop. Our youngest is sure in love with the

tractors and combines and really enjoys riding along! The girls are growing quick

and love to bring lunch to the field for me!


SPRING 2017

Spring is finally here. We are excited to be working the fields but with the wetter than 

normal spring, we have enlisted the help of Stuchal Custom Ag Service to install drain 

tile with their state of​ the art tiling equipment on some of our farms. 


Fall 2016

Harvest is well on its way. The crops are looking nice and the weather has been on our side.

We appreciate all of the friendly hellos and your patience as we travel the highways.

Thank you for allowing us to preserve your land! 


FALL 2015

October 29, 2015 - Harvest is underway! The weather has been cooperating and we are

moving along quickly! Thank you for your patience on the roads.  



SUMMER 2015

July 12, 2015 - In between all of the rain we were able to harvest wheat. Yields were

good which lead to a lot of straw that needed baled!



SPRING 2015

April 20, 2015 - All machines are ready for spring work! When the weather breaks you

may see us in a field near you! Thanks for you patience as we travel down the highway!

Harvest 2014

December 22, 2014 - We have finished the 2014 Harvest! We would like to wish everyone a very

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!


September 28, 2014 - Fall has arrived and we have started to harvest! Today is the first day

that we had the combine in the field harvesting the soybean crop. Sophie, Sydnie and

my wife, Danielle came out for a ride in the combine with me! Here is our best combine selfie!

(John Deere Shirts for the girls too!)


Summer 2014

August 9, 2014 - Thank you to everyone who attended the 1st Annual Powell

Grain Farms, Inc. Appreciation Picnic! It was wonderful to see everyone and to

have you all meet our daughters! We are looking forward to a successful harvest!

See you soon! 


Planting 2014


May 12, 2014 - We started planing on May 8. With our challenging North West
Pennsylvania 
weather, we have been up against rain delays. 


It is with a heavy heart that our family sends out condolences to a local farmer,

Howard Crispen who passed away tragically. May he rest in peace. 


June 15, 2014 - Happy Father's Day! We are taking the day off to spend time with

our family! The twins are growing so fast, I don't want to miss a moment of it! 

Planting is now complete! We are starting to apply Nitrogen to the corn and

spraying soybeans.



Harvest 2013

 

October 12, 2013 - The warm October weather is helping move harvest along!
Thank you Mother Nature!

October 7, 2013 -  It's that time of year again! The weather is cooling off, leaves are
changing and the combine is running! We officially started harvesting on October 2
but then Mother Nature sent some rain our way. Things are moving along and the
equipment is ready to go, now we just need some dry weather so that we can get back
into the fields!

November 5, 2013 - We switched to corn for the last 10 days because of rain delays. Yields
have
been good but it seems the northern ground got hurt from the heavy spring rains.

All and all were very happy with the crop. We would also like to announce the birth of our
twin baby girls - Sophie
and Sydnie. Thank you to everyone for all of the cards of
congratulations. We have been blessed! 

December 6, 2013 - Harvest has been delayed due to the weather. We continue to hope
that mother
nature will be on our side so that we can finish our harvest in time for the
holidays.

December 12, 2013 - We are still battling with snow delays. When we have a nice day,
we head 
to the fields to get off as much of the remaining crop as possible. We are happy
to have our twin girls 
home from the hospital! This holiday season we have lots to be
thankful for! 
From our family to yours...Happy Holidays!


January 22, 2014 - We are officially into a new year. With all of the snow and wet weather
we have been 
having, we continue to be behind with the 2013 Harvest. We have completed
all of our corn and only 
have one field of beans left to go. We continue to hope that
Mother Nature will be on our side soon and 
allow us to finish! Our cold days are spent
in the shop servicing our equipment and moving grain to 
market. Check out our "Links"
page and learn more about Ethanol and GMO's. If you have any 
questions let us know!

Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2014!


March 15, 2014 - With harvest finally completed, spring is just around the corner. We are

working to spread fertilizer and get equipment prepared for planting.
