Jeff, & Austin
About the Farm:
Tom Novak and his sons Jon, Jeff & Austin Novak, have a 370-acre dairy, beef, and cash grain farm near Highland.
They have been no-tilling for the past several years and purchased a no-till drill that they are prepared to rent to neighbor farmers and will use on their own farm. They will continue to use a no-till drill to plant their crops, and they are always trying out new cover crops.
Read more about Novak Farms from the field day they hosted with the Uplands Watershed Group in 2022.
Watch Tom Novak talk through his years' long leaning process experimenting with no-till and cover crops below.
