Century Farm: Teamwork works

This 130-year-old farm spans just three generations. The Bateses are the third generation to farm this place in Mitchell County near Beloit, Kansas, and they are relative newcomers to the operation. They moved to Beloit in 1998 to raise their family, and Jeff and Jeri began helping her parents on the operation. They never missed a chance to learn from Bill and Louise, who were just one generation from the hardships and toil of first-generation farmers. Successful Farming's Bill Spiegel talks with the Walter family about the early days of the farm and where they intend to take it today.

Carol Ruth Myers-Thomas

Its with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carol Ruth Myers-Thomas on May 10, 2022. Carol was born on July 9, 1950 in Salina, KS to Seth and Helen Myers. Her childhood was spent on the farm at Barnard, KS, where she graduated from Lincoln High School. During that time, she formed relationships with people and animals alike. One of her first animal friends was a rooster. They built what they thought was a lasting bond until one day the family ate the rooster. Carol also participated in 4H where she raised a cow who sadly was also eaten after showing. She stopped befriending meaty edibles after the loss of the second friend.
