Farm has been cropped in the past, and also used to raise both hogs and cattle.
The last crop that was grown here was back in 1990; at the time a total 1,368 acres was utilized as follows (as per CWB records):
207 acres – wheat
98 acres – barley

383 acres – summer fallow

After that time, a conservation agreement with Ducks unlimited was entered into (which expired in 2012). The DU project included water control measures being applied to the land. Since 1990, the amount of readily cropable land has decreased.
