About Us
Located in East Central Illinois Terrydale Farms started in
the Spring of 1950 by Bill and Wanda Furry. With two bred
gilts given by father in law Ralph Bumpus on their Aunt's
80 acre tenant farm. Through the first 10 years TDF was a
typical diversified operation. In 1954 the operation moved
south a half mile to the Leon Ball Farm where the elevator
and main farm are presently located. After the first few
years the scope of the operation was narrowed to row crop
and swine production.  In 1982 the 3000 head hog
operation was sold off and we refocused solely on row
crop farming. TDF was reorganized to a family held
corporation in 1997. We currently farm 3900 acres in corn
on corn and corn soybean rotation using Min-Till Beans,
Mulch Till Corn, and Conventional Corn on Corn. In the
past 10 years we have adopted Geographically Referenced
Information Systems for most field operations and more
recently started using Variable Rate Application Systems
for more efficent nutrient management.
Harold Marts worked at TDF for over 40 years.
After reaching that milestone he decided to semi
retire. Now he can be found usually during the
busy seasons or other times we need some extra
help.The maintenance and operation skills he
has acquired throughout his years are invaluable
on our farm. On his retirement time Harold does
wood working making many different replicas,
many of them award winning along with flea
markets and fishing.

Todd Easton has been working around the farm
for 25 years. After graduating from Lake Land
College with a Certificate of Crop Production 15
years ago he started working on the farm full
time and now oversees the management of the
operation. During rare off time he enjoys
camping and spending time with his wife Kelly Jo
and children Case & Maddison.

Morey Hawkins is our Operations Supervisor and
brings years of farming, construction, and production
experence with him. He is always looking for a better
way to do the job and usually finds it. His quick
adaptation to technology makes him a natural with any
of our precision systems. If he's not here he can be
found either helping his Dad farm in Kansas or
spending time with wife Rose and daughters Mia and
