Steve and Kristy Buchmeier, along with their boys Brett and Blake, operate this 3rd generation farm, growing small grains, canola, beans, and corn.
The Buchmeier’s are always looking for ways to improve conservation on their family farm. They have been participants in the RCPP 49th Parallel Cover Crop Project: “How Far North Can We Grow” for the last 4 years, planting cover crops on their marginal land and utilizing season long cover crops and grass plantings to help improve soil health. They have utilized EQIP, CSP, and the Water Bank program to address other resource concerns on their farm.
The Ramsey County Soil Conservation looks forward to continuing working with the Buchmeier Family as they continue to be good stewards of the land.
