Blake Gordon of B & C Gordon Farms raises wheat, corn, soybeans, and sugar beets in Croswell. He and his dad, Cliff, often don’t need to use a two-way radio to communicate, because they know what the other is thinking. Blake enjoys farming so much that when he’s not doing it, he likes to play the video game Farm Simulator. Blake is also a Pioneer seed salesman and a Michigan Farm Bureau Young Farmer Leader Award finalist. Like many essential businesses, COVID-19 hasn’t changed his day-to-day operations, but it does change the markets.
Listen as he talks about:
- His most-used apps, in addition to Snapchat
- Autosteer, and how it helps in record-keeping
- The best parts about working with Pioneer
- Tractor pulls, county fairs, and supporting the community
- His optimistic view of the challenges of farming
