With Integrity
The Future of Agriculture

 

 

Welcome

Welcome to Kline Family Farms website.

Kline Family Farms is a second-generation family farm located in east central Indiana.  Our annual crop production includes corn, soybeans, and seed wheat. Our logo, Innovative Farming with Integrity, was formulated to accurately reflect our philosophy as well as our mission. We are a farm enterprise that recognizes and values the importance of the many partnerships it takes to successfully operate our farm.  We strive to produce the highest yields possible, using the latest technology  while utilizing superior land stewardship practices.  Our goal is to be profitable for our landowners while sustaining land productivity for the future. Our commitment to these goals will be illustrated as we launch our website to provide you the latest news and information  about our operation.


This Week at Kline Family Farms

It is always hard to say good-bye to summer.  Obviously the days get shorter and the lightning bugs go wherever they go when it gets a little cooler. We had a fun party a few weeks ago for our Landowner Appreciation dinner. Everyone worked together to treat our landowners like honored guests...
