What do farmers do when they’re not in the field?

They tinker with tractors, or course!

Brandon and Charlie got the 1952 (or 53?) Cockshutt tractor running yesterday and couldn’t wait to ride it through the farm!

Farmers are working night and day right now to get crops in the ground!

When you meet them in the road, it may feel like they’re moving too slow or getting in your way - but they are just doing their jobs. They aren’t trying to slow you down.

Here are a couple of ways you can support your local farmer when you encounter them on the road:

🚜 if you pull up behind a piece of equipment, don’t immediately try to pass. Give the farmer time to move over a bit. If he (or she!!) doesn’t move over right away, recognize that they can see things you can’t see!! Be patient - they will move as soon as it is safely possible.

🚜 if you can’t pass safely, turn on your blinkers. This gives drivers behind you (who may not share your farming enlightenment!) a signal from a distance that there is something slowing down traffic.

🚜 if you see a farmer in oncoming traffic, slow down. Check your surroundings. If it is safe, pull off the road a bit to let the equipment pass. You’ll get a very friendly wave from a grateful farmer.

🚜 finally, if you see a farmer at a corner and he or she is attempting to turn your way, do the same thing as above. Check your surroundings, pull over if it’s safe, and give them plenty of space to move.

Farmers feed the world - but it’s more than food on the table. Soybean oil is used in wax and ink, fabrics and adhesives - and so much more! Corn oil is used in art supplies and cardboard, balloons and balls - and so much more! We depend on the products that farmers work to provide.

So please be patient, have grace, and show kindness. Your farmers and their families appreciate it!

Neighbors of the farm may notice a particular…aroma today.

Farmers, gardeners, and others use livestock manure as a soil amendment to improve soil quality. In addition to providing nutrients for plant growth, applying fresh or composted livestock manure to cropland improves soil organic matter and tilth (the physical conditions that make a soil suitable for growing crops).

Although we’re sorry for the odor, we’re happy to take care of the fields God has provided us to grow corn, popcorn, and soybeans.

The smell will dissipate soon! Thank you for supporting your local farmers! Thank you Jacob Sprong for your help in keeping our soil healthy!

This guy just loves his corn! Some would even say he's the CEO of corn! He's a real cornboy. Corn!-----------------------------------------------------------...

Congratulations to Heath Coffman! He entered this pumpkin, reflecting his farm heritage, in his class decorating contest - and won!

We think it's pretty awesome, too!

Grain entrapment is a real threat to farmers and ag workers every day. Grain entrapment happens when a person is inside a grain bin and the grain begins to move. In only four seconds, you are trapped. Total engulfment happens in 20 seconds.

Nearly 80% of grain entrapment incidents happen when grain is in motion. As an auger pulls grain out from the bottom, it creates a funnel that pulls you into the grain. Depending on how much grain is in the bin, that could be a million pounds of pressure on your body. Death is nearly certain.

Farming is one of the top ten most dangerous jobs in the United States. Yet our farmers keep working, keep moving, keep plowing, keep planting, keep harvesting - they keep going. Not just to put food on the table, but to supply feed for livestock, fuel for ethanol and biodiesel engines, and many other environmentally friendly products, like newspapers, flooring, countertops, candles - and so much more.

Support your local farmer. Be patient during in-field seasons. Know that they are doing their best to ensure safety - on the road, and on the farm. And most importantly, keep them in your prayers, especially now as they patiently wait for ground to dry so they can plant the seeds for the products you depend on!

Just a friendly reminder... We appreciate your patience!

We hope you’re practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others. Out here on the farm we just stay about 10 ears of corn away from each other!

We hope you’re staying safe during this time and enjoying the time with your families. We’re thankful for God’s Blessing this planting season and we’re thinking we might even be on schedule. (Knock on wood!)

Stay safe everyone, and don’t forget to stay 10 ears of corn apart! 🌽

Today we are so thankful for a safe and healthy season so far! Our corn is getting tall, beans are getting big, and we are staying busy. Thank you for supporting your local farmers.

It's harvest season! Please be careful as you encounter farm equipment on the road. These guys are thoughtful and patient and try not to be in your way - but it happens.

We are excited for another safe and happy harvest!

We have 4 barns here at Coffman Farms. This one is called "The Shop", it's where the guys work on any equipment that needs fixed. It's also where the gator, mower, and lots of tools are stored!

This is the newest construction on the farm. The semi trucks drive under it, dump the corn, and then the corn goes into the grain bins. The big tower on the left is 100 ft tall! The grain bin is about 80 ft tall! Lots of new stuff happening on the farm!

Meet our farm dog, Rocky! He loves to be petted, played with, and eat lots of Kibble and treats. His job on the farm, (which he kind of appointed himself too) is to bark at all the birds and scare them away from the corn in the trailer! Even though that's his job, he has a lot of downtime. Rocky likes spending that time laying in the shade of the barn or playing with his favorite kid Sam!

Planting season is just around the corner. We are busy preparing - working on equipment, figuring out seed and acreage, etc. - there's never a dull moment on the farm!

An empty bean field and a quiet shop. The guys worked most of the night to finish up beans ahead of the weather... Now on to corn!

09/19/2014

Here's what we like to see in September! The colors of the beans and corn tell us harvest is imminent! We are preparing our equipment, getting things in order - we'll start any day now.

Remember to watch for your farmers on the road, and be patient. We know it can be frustrating to get behind a tractor when you've got some place to go - so take a deep breath and drive safely!

Here's a quick Facebook game we can play - what are some physical signs in the plants themselves that show us they are ready to be harvested? Comment below if you know the answer!

Happy 70th Birthday, Charlie Coffman!

Last night, we hosted the kids from Harris Chapel's Camp Life. The theme was soccer and farming. What does soccer have to do with the farm? Coffman Farms is a part of an organization that works in post-civil war Liberia, called Seeds of Hope. Seeds was started by John Parsons, who was inspired to help after a trip to Liberia with the organization L.A.C.E.S. (Life and Change Experienced through Sports). Seeds also supports another organization called Hope 2 Liberia. All three of these ministries originated right here in Delaware County!

We are very proud to work with these groups, who help to provide community structure, meals, educational opportunities, and most importantly - the gospel of Jesus to children in Liberia.

For more information, L.A.C.E.S has a page! Do a quick search and you'll find a lot of information.
