The Reeve family has operated the land for over 100 years. In the beginning, the land was ranch land used for grazing. Upon the development of center pivot sprinklers, in 1965, the first sprinklers were put on the land. By 1980, the entirety of the land was converted to center pivot sprinkler farmland. Currently the land is used to grown triticale and alfalfa which is used to feed the cattle in the nearby feed yard, aide in the production of the ethanol, and sold.
