Fisher Tradition Farms is a family owned and operated farm in central Michigan; one that has deep roots in American agriculture that dates back to the mid 1800’s when our family farmed in the Greenville, Ohio area. A portion of the family moved to central Michigan in the early 1900’s and since has been involved in production agriculture for six generations, with the hope of allowing future generations the opportunity to continue this tradition.
Our operation thrives today because of the belief that good work ethic, integrity, and pride in developing long lasting relationships lead to success for all involved. Many ideas and sound practices have been passed down from the generations that have come before us. While we still use many of those ideas and practices today, we also have a strong desire to be on the leading edge by keeping in tune with, and implementing, new farming advancements and technology. All of these things contribute to our success now, and into the future.
We invite you to explore our website and learn more about us and how and why we do things as we do. You will find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Please feel free to contact us. We look forward to the opportunity of building a relationship with you.
Innovative Family Farm
Fisher Tradition Farms thinks of itself as a progressive operation, using all of the tools available to us. We use GPS technology from auto steer and variable rate seeding to gathering harvest data. More recently we have integrated an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), or drone, to help detect problems in our fields, be it pests or drainage.
Our soil health practices include the use of soil electrical conductivity (EC) maps, which are generated using a Veris mapping system. Gathering samples for soil tests becomes more efficient when using these maps. Cover crops are another part of our goal to continue to improve the health and productivity of our soils.
