Harvest completed on the Hillcrest farm
Did you know we own a farm?
Hillcrest Academy’s 77 acre farm located northwest of campus, was farmed yet again by many faithful alumni and friends. Approximately 63 acres are farmed in a 50/50, corn/soybean rotation, with about 5 acres in the Conservation Reserve Program (CSP). This fall the farm yielded 192 bu/acre of corn and 55 bu/acre of beans.
Thanks to Doug Slaubaugh (’74), Justin Slaubaugh (’00), Troy Slaubaugh (’04), Roger Stutzman (’74), Dale Stutzman (’02), John Schrock, and Derek Bontrager (’96) for all their efforts! In this Thanksgiving season, we are especially grateful to these alumni and friends who keep this farm running.
