E & H Farms Inc. History
Eric started renting ground while in high school, starting with 300 acres in 1989. Eric knew from childhood that farming would be his lifelong passion. He returned from college to farm full-time in 1994. He and Heather were married later that year. They formed E&H Farms, Inc. in 1995. They started their endeavor by buying his grandfather’s home and surrounding farm ground. Now the operation consists of growing wheat, seed wheat, soybeans, corn, and pinto beans.
A lot of factors go into growing a quality product. Fertilizer, soil type and weather play a huge role in the overall performance in the crop. Starting with a tested and Certified seed takes one variable out of the equation. Our seed wheat varieties are handpicked each year to thrive in our climate and soil types. We also look for other specific traits that work well n northwest Kansas and southeast Colorado.
We also offer fungicide and herbicide seed treatments at E & H Farms, not only for the seed wheat that we grow, but also for outside products including soybeans and seed corn. Our in-house experts can help you decide which treatments are right for your varieties and your farm.
