Flying J Farm

The farm dates back to 1840 when the farm house and old barn were built. These have been beautifully restored and the house serves as a B&B. Visitors are always welcome but please call for an appointment. There is a market on the farm where you can purchase out organically grown products including grass-fed beef, maple syrup, eggs, and produce.

The Flying J Farm is 250 beautiful rolling acres including 100 acres of woods, three streams, a small fish pond, a 6-acre lake, pastures with cows, horses, and chickens, three vegetable gardens, a five acre food forest with fruit trees, berry bushes, and nut trees. Our philosophy is to "Live 'til you die" and restore the land to provide healthy food for ourselves and our customers. We are extreme environmentalists who live what we preach, make our own fuel from waste oil, provide our own fertilizer with animal waste, make our own lumber from our trees, heat with renewable wood from the forest, and eat mostly our own food.

You are welcome to visit anytime, just make an appointment. For a list of our products and other opportunities including farm stays visit our website flyingjfarm.com

I am planning to be at the Granville Thanksgiving outdoor market tomorrow with all cuts of clean grass-fed beef, except will not have grilling steaks. I am getting anxious to sell my maple syrup as I am now into getting ready for the next season, so I will offer a 10 percent discount on syrup - make great gifts for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Also I will have garlic seed, someone has been asking for it. I am looking at the forecast, and it doesn't look good. If it is raining hard at the time I load in the morning (O-dark 30), I will not make it to the market. Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Farmer Dick flyingjfarm.com

Vet's Day Sale at the Farm market. Today pick up some maple syrup made from the sap of the maple trees at the Flying J Farm at 10 percent off. Makes a great gift for Thanksgiving dinner. I will also have grass-finished beef, and a few vegies at the Granville farm market 9:30 - 12:00, at Granger school on Granger St. Farmer Dick

Got the corn in the bin today, now being dried further. Now contemplating going after the rest of the corn, probably tomorrow afternoon. May need someone to drive the tractor to pull me out. Meanwhile, I am planning to be at the Granville winter market tomorrow morning with the ground beef that I have left, liver, stew beef, and a couple of short ribs. Also, lots of maple syrup and some leeks. Hope to see you there 9:30 - 12:00 at the Granger school on Granger st. Farmer Dick

Had one of those mistake-filled days that I had often as a rookie on the farm (and loved to tell about in my farm journal). Today I was excited to see my corn test at 16 percent moisture so quickly got the combine out and started to harvest corn (even though we got 1.1 inch of rain over night), with help from Denison students Gilly and Feebie. Did pretty well and the production was good (but lots of deer damage). Nearing the end I felt like the ground was getting softer but continued anyway. Sure enough the combine stopped going forward, and would not go back either. Took a look and saw I was buried. First thought was that I had to get the corn out to lighten it. Went back tot the barn to get another grain wagon but had to move the boat out of the way first. Boat had a flat tire needed the tractor to move. The wagon had two flats and both pumped up but one had a bad leak in the valve so that was not going to work. It was getting dark and rain was coming in. Thought I would try to move it with the big Massey but with no help it likely would not work. I hooked it up and pulled hard, it seemed to give a little. Got into the combine, would not move. Then thought I would try a real risky move. I put the combine in gear with some power, then ran out to the tractor and gave it another pull, it started to come out. I ran out as quickly as I could to stop the combine. Got it out, It was well past dark when I go the combine back in the barn together with one full grain wagon. All is well.

Just to let you know, tomorrow, Oct 31 is the last day of my 20 percent off sale for all Flying J Farm products. Most cuts of beef are now sold but still have ground beef, two briskets, some stew beef and some tenderloin. Let me know if you would like to come out to the farm to get some 740-817-3602 or message me. Farmer Dick
