Dalhart Christian Academy plants seeds of hope

A local producer donates land to grow corn silage and sweet corn for school fundraiser and outreach.

Dalhart Christian Academy, Dalhart, Texas, is producing its first fundraising-crop on land donated by a local grower with close ties to the academy. Funds raised by the sale of the corn silage, which is contracted to a local dairy, will be put back into the academy. 

Not only was the land donated but all of the inputs to produce the crop, except the electricity, were as well. And while the majority of the acres were planted to corn silage, the two acres of sweet corn planted were picked by the students and their families and distributed throughout the community to people in need.  

September 28, DCA held a Farm Field Day BBQ to celebrate the farm and update attendees on the crop progress and partnerships involved in making the crop possible.
