Schantz family 2017 DASNR Champion

 Lillian and Merlin SchantzAlthough Merlin and Lillian Schantz began farming together in 1985, the Schantz Family Farm began in 1908. On their centennial farm near Hydro, Oklahoma, they use a diverse cropping system with field crops, and over the years have expanded into horticultural crops such as hot peppers, turnips, carrots and greens.

Merlin and Lillian were recently recognized at DASNR Honors night as 2017 DASNR Champions, a recognition given to those who are not graduates of the agriculture college, but who have brought distinction to DASNR and demonstrated a continuing interest in agriculture and natural resources.

Avid supporters of OSU and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, the Schantzes have graciously provided land for demonstration and research plots for several decades. They continue to seek advanced agriculture practices through innovation and the education of others.
