Farm Bureau Meeting

We were pleased to have the Indiana Farm Bureau spring meeting in our shop last night. Over 100 Farm Bureau members from northeast Indiana were able to attend.


Countdown to Planting

The countdown is on….52 days until planting! We are busying preparing equipment, hauling out last year’s harvest and getting in our last chance to vacation or take time off of work before our really long days begin around April 1st! The weather has been unseasonably warm, it almost feels like spring is here now!


Merry Christmas


Beautiful Fall Day!

There’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!


Fred Dodge

Today we lay a great friend to rest. We will miss Fred and the wonderful job he did mowing the roadsides and his friendship!


Done Planting!

We are done planting, caught up on spraying, and 70% done with sidedress! Doing some irrigation and praying for rain!

At the farm his jobs include seed treating, delivering seed, and driving the grain cart when in the fields. His favorite thing to do on the farm is hauling straw/hay and operating equipment.

Feature on Nick Dance Concrete & Design

For everyone who has recently taken a drive past our location in Ashley, you may have noticed that big changes have happened at Stoy Farms. Because of recent expansion we grew to be too large for our old office space and have thus needed to build a new office and shop space. Look at this article on Nick Dancer Concrete & Design showcasing the polished concrete floors in our office. We love that they add to the uniqueness of our new space and think you will too!
