The end of an era is rapidly approaching for the Brones family and the surrounding community. For the last 110 years, there has been a Brones actively farming northwest of Swea City, Iowa. Our last harvest was completed a few weeks ago. All of the farm equipment is cleaned, winterized and lined up, awaiting the auctioneers gavel. The land has been leased to new agricultural families. Goodbye friends and neighbors, it's been a good run! A new chapter is being written for all of us!

The descendants of:

Jay & Betty Brones and their children:

Andy and Elsie Brones
Hubert Brones
Bill and Lillian (Brones) Buhmann
Warren and Maxine Brones
Kenney and Isabelle Brones

I am certainly going to miss all the John Deere toys!

For the last 110 years, there has been a Brones family member planting this north central Iowa 1/4 section of farmland. With sadness in my heart and tears in my eyes, I am drawing to a close our 110 year tradition at section 13, Eagle Township, Kossuth County, Iowa.

My cousins and I have the task of choosing an auction house to liquidate Uncle Kenny's line of farm equipment. Thanks go out to all of the people who are working hard to make this time a little easier.

Today is the end of a era! At 8:08am, Kenneth Brones passed away suddenly. He was a Great American Farmer to the very end and he will be sorely missed. Goodbye Uncle Kenny, we love you!

Received .48" of Mother Nature's bounty last night!

07/26/2015

Received .17" rain early this morning, enough to settle the dust; could have made use of 5x that amount. I'm not complaining, just hoping for more.

Mother Nature put on a small show for us on Friday evening!  Unfortunately, she saw fit to drop her rain elsewhere.
