I Built the Best

  • Winners' Circle
    The creative spark burns bright on America’s farms, as evidenced by Farm Journal’s long-running “I Built the Best” contest. On Bruce Bishop’s farm near McComb, Ohio, the spark doesn’t merely burn—it blazes. For the second straight year, Bishop topped the planters category of the contest, with a 60'15" soybean planter that needs no carrying wheels. Even more remarkable, Bishop’s victory marks his ninth category win.
