The Hoffman farm continued with my father managing and operating it. We moved on from sugar beets, and were primarily barley, alfalfa, pinto beans, and corn. We continued farming approx. 500 acres in and around Johnstown until our last season in the area in 2001.
1986 was a highlight year as my father won Coors Barley Grower of the year. Which was one of many awards he achieved in his career. The Hoffman farm was known for growing quality crops, and excellent maintenance of their equipment.
