Rulon Enterprises is a family farm located in Arcadia, Indiana, that continues a seven-generation tradition of sustainable and environmentally responsible farming. Originally homesteaded in 1869, the farm has persevered through many good and bad times by constantly focusing on our core business of sustainable crop and livestock production. Since the early 1960s, brothers Jerry and Doyle Rulon operated the farm. The next generation – Ken, Roy, and Rodney – now operate the farm. Roy’s sons, Nick and Neal Rulon, are working with the 6th generation to create a sustainable transition into the 7th. Our main objective is to achieve and generate healthy soil while remaining economical for future generations. We strive to leave the soil in better shape than when we started!
What’s Happening On The Farm?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! What a great growing year we had in 2021! With phenomenal weather and timely rains, our growing season came lead to a rewarding harvest. While weather during the later half of harvest was challenging, we were able to complete harvest timely. We were even able to take advantage of some of the late season warm weather to clean up some of our equipment! At this point in the year at the shop, we are finishing up cleaning equipment, making repairs, applying lime and fertilizer, and cleaning up around the shop. In the office, we’re busy with data and test block analysis, end of year wrap-up, and 2022 budgeting! We are looking forward to the upcoming growing season and all the challenges and rewards it brings. Be on the lookout for the comeback of the Annual Peer Meeting! We are planning on everyone getting back together for 2022, so keep an open schedule in August! Join our Peer Group today to see some of our data analysis, marketing strategies/advice, and much more! Thanks for visiting!
