We operate over 12,000 acres of non-irrigated, no-till crop ground in the Ideal, SD area. A 100% no-till operation since the early 1990s, we place a strong emphasis on soil health and sustainability throughout our entire production system.
A 100% no-till operation since the early 1990s, we place a strong emphasis on soil health and sustainability throughout our entire production system.
We use a variety of proven techniques and technologies to improve soil health, conserve our land, and produce certified seed year after year.
For example, we lower production costs and greatly improve soil health by maintaining a diverse rotation with as many as 12 different crops. We also plant cover crop in available acres during the off growing season, which is then grazed by our bull herd.
All of our equipment is equipped with cutting-edge precision agriculture technology, so we can maximize efficiency and collect and analyze production data in near-real time. We also dedicate around 800 acres a year solely to wildlife habitat and maintain 350,000 bushels of grain storage to ensure quick harvest time truck turn-around.
Jorgensen Farms has been a family-run operation for over 100 years.
