In Michigan, and around the country, they are #StillFarming.

At Oxendale Farms in the St. Louis, a city of about 7,000 in the heart of Michigan, they farm corn and soybeans in addition to feeding anywhere between 300-400 head of cattle each year.

The farm is now run by Kristy and Trent Oxendale but it goes back several generations one when Trent’s great grandfather began as a cash crop farmer and in 1961, his grandfather added the cattle barn.

“We are proud to still be farming today and providing top quality beef products at a national and global level,” Kristy said.

Farming has quickly been passed down to their children, including 5-year-old Aria, who says she wants to be a “farming movie star when she grows up.”

“Our children love to watch the crops and cattle grow and we are proud to teach them the many valuable lessons that farming has to offer,” Kristy said.

Recently, the farm has undertaken the challenge of improving sustainability, which included upgrading the manure management facility.
