Since the beginning of his career, Paul Burmeister has incorporated the tenet of continuous learning to make improvements on the quality of his produce. He grew up farming and has utilized his skills in education and chemistry to grow a successful venture. Such innovations include intercropping sweet clover and grain sorghum that yielded better results and was adopted by a neighbor. Beginning in 1956, he and his family constructed and developed grass waterways and methods for soil conservation which resulted in receiving the local Banker’s Award for Soil Conservation in Barton County, Kansas in 1990. Mr. Burmeister specializes in planting winter wheat, spring oats, grain sorghum, and smooth bromegrass for hay. He is an expert in preventing soil erosion, utilizing sweet clover for improvement of soil nitrogen, and for sweet clover seed. His farm is about 680 cultivated acres with a total acreage of about 785. In 1960, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry and agriculture from Fort Hays State University. He served with Kansas (U.S.) National Guard from 1963 to 1969 and the U.S. Peace Corps. He endeavors to continue farming and selling produce to local grain, co-ops with grain storage facilities and beef cattle farmers.
