Protect Your Farm with Farmer’s Insurance from GreenStone

Farming is a tough, rewarding business. Farming the land can be deeply satisfying, but it’s not without stress. Between managing crops, taking care of livestock, managing equipment and attending to farm chores, there’s a lot to worry about. Take some of the worry off your shoulders with farm insurance from GreenStone Farm Credit Services.

When farming goes according to plan, you feel great--you’re feeding others and living off the land. It is important to remember, though, that farming is a business and you need to treat it as such. Do you have a plan in place if things go wrong?

Farm Insurance keeps some farms in business

If you’ve never had to deal with a claim for your farm, you’re fortunate. Farm insurance is there for those times when you have suffered a loss, and need to recoup the money. While you may not have had to file a claim this year, or in years past, next year could be different. We cannot state it enough--farm insurance can be the difference between staying in business, or closing. While crop insurance may not eliminate the full bill, it can certainly lessen the blow.

If you’re considering insurance for your farm, contact the team at GreenStone Farm Credit Services at 800-968-0061.


Michigan archery season opens

We are officially into October and Michigan's archery deer season has begun!  Fall food plots have had plenty of rain and sunshine to be in full growth and maturity by now.  We still have many quality parcels of Hunting Land for sale in Michigan, all around our state so get with us and let's take a walk!


And into September we go!

Well it's that time of the year that we've all been waiting for since the last days of our season ended last winter.  It's September!  With archery seasons opening all over the midwest this month and our Michigan opener less than a month away, it's time to be making those last minute preparations, hanging stands, getting that last bit of seed in the ground.....and PLEASE remember to always wear a harness while hanging stands and hunting.  BE SAFE.  No animal in the world is worth being in a wheel chair for the rest of your life....or worse.


Last chance weekend coming up to get those fall food plots in!

With Labor Day weekend coming up, it's really your last chance to get out there and plant those fall food plots.  Warm weather and rain seems to be the forecast so conditions will be perfect!


Time to prepare!

Well here we are in Mid August everyone.  Archery season is right around the corner.  Now is the time to be making those final preparations, hanging stands if you haven't already hung them, clipping branches that may deflect an arrow, and getting those fall food plots planted.  Rain is in the forecast this week so now is a great time to get that fertilizer and seed in the ground.  Get out there and get ready for a fantastic fall in Michigan!


Weed control on food plots during hot summer months

Well we are definitely in the "dog days" of summer.  This growing season in Michigan has been a difficult one due to our up and down weather.  We had snow coming down sideways in April when we should have been in the fields planting, and that was followed by torrential rains that had nearly everyone's fields in a flooded muddy mess..........oh yeah, and then the rain stopped and it turned into heat index's of over 100 degrees.  This created a perfect storm for weed growth, and algae covering our ponds.  Feel free to contact us if you're having any of these issues on your property and we can share ideas on what we do to combat these problems.
