Rader Family Farms

The Rader Family Farm started as a dairy farm before growing into a grain farm with over 30 acres of pumpkins, gourds, and sweet corn. Lynn Rader and his 6 younger siblings were raised on this Guernsey Dairy farm by their parents, Glenn and Margaret Rader. For the past many years they have also grown and sold sweet corn in the summer and pumpkins and other produce in the fall. The family realizes that each new generation knows less about agriculture, and hopes that visiting the farm will help bridge the gap between city and country.

FUN FACTS

The average American may eat 125 pounds of potatoes each year, but corn is actually America’s number one field crop, providing ingredients for cereals, peanut butter, snack foods and soft drinks. The average person eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year alone! Use a trip to an agricultural farm to find out where our fruits and vegetables come from. Compare organic, pesticide-free, and genetically engineered crops. Research the products made possible by crops grown in the U.S. (shampoos, crayons, and baseball bats all come from agricultural products, for example). Ask your local farm about the benefits of eating local or growing your own garden.
