Custom Farming with Covel Creek Farms
Take in to consideration the high cost of machinery, machinery repair, aging farm owners and other high risk situations, custom farming can be a great option to take.
Many farm owners also hire custom farmers to assist in planting and harvest. This option is great for the landowner who wishes to hold the title of farmer and have the ability to retain close control of the farm, but is not active in the day to day activities. This allows the landowner to make all the purchases for inputs and receives all of the income from sales.
The custom farm operator preforms all of the labor and provides all of the equipment necessary for the crop product activities.
Covel Creek Farms is ready to go with a full line of equipment. Another advantage is twin row variable rate planting. Covel Creek Farms is a leader of this technology. Twin row variable rate planting will grow your yields by 7-11 bushel. Planting or harvesting is available as well as 28% side dressing of corn.
