    Managing the weeds, turning the dirt in between the rows...and having fun while doing it.

    In an effort to streamline the hay buying process, 

    • We will do this on a first come, first served basis.
    • Anyone that wants to purchase alfalfa must send an email to haysales@aedgeta.org
    • Price is $8.50 per bale.
    • All orders will be fulfilled to the best of our ability, and in the event we have more orders than bales, those that are left out will be placed first on the list for the next cutting.
    • If someone decides not to purchase hay, the unpurchased hay will go to the next person in line that didn't have an order fulfilled. 
    • Bales will be able to be picked up the first Saturday after baling.
    • Please bring a confirmation email from either Jason Muller or Ed Savage.
    • If hay needs to be picked up after the Saturday time frame, please make arrangements with either Jason Muller or Ed Savage to ensure that bales are left for you to get.   

    We will no longer be selling to the general public, and only to members.  Any leftover bales will be sold wholesale or donated to an equine rescue center to help alleviate any potential over sale and accounting issues.

    Red Ronnebaum, Randy Waddle, and Chad Collier (photography) were out at the farm ground, testing out a restored Parlin and Orendorff Diamond sulky plow.  For those of you not familiar with this brand, this was similar to the story of John Deere.  Parlin was an apprentice blacksmith from New England, moved west, and started producing plows in the 1840's.  Eventually, the company was purchased by International Harvester in 1919.  

    Speaking of the club farm ground, there is a small section that any member can use for plowing at any time.  Reach out to Randy or Red for information.  In the meantime, here are some pictures of their project.

    The Fiesta Bowl parade had been postponed to some point this Spring.  As many of you have seen in the local news, it has now been cancelled.  The committee is now focused on late December of this year, the usual timeline for the parade.

    Approximately 60 members were able to attend the Annual Meeting at the Farm Ground this past Saturday night.  In addition to the BBQ and the business meeting, members were able to take advantage of the new shelter that was recently constructed.

    Long time AEDGE&TA member Earl McRae has passed away.

    He was born on June 9, 1938 and he passed away on September 7, 2020.  Earl is survived by his wife, Elaine; 2 sons, Bruce and Brian, and one daughter Debra Roth.

    Earl joined AEDGE&TA in the 1990’s.  Earl served our country in the Army and was assigned to a tank division.  He was a director of Radiology and instructed students on the proper way to use the machines.  Earl was also a member of Knights of Columbus.

    Surprise, surprise, Earl loved to play with tractors.  Earl loved restoring the old iron and make it run.  His favorite tractors were his Massey Harris Pony’s.  One of his more unusual tractors was a John Deere B.  It was from a former governor of Kansas.  If Earl wasn’t working on tractors you would most likely find him reading a book, he was an avid reader.

    Earl and his wife moved to Buckeye, Arizona from Kansas and still have close ties with friends and relatives in Kansas.

    There is a Funeral Mass scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 10 am at Saint Henry’s Catholic Church, 24750 W. Lower Buckeye Rd., Buckeye, AZ 85326.
