Almost two years ago Mac Diehl took over the fertilizer and chemical business of Boettcher Enterprises, Burr Oak, from Richard Gates, who retired after 35 years of service. Since them, the business remained at the south edge of Burr Oak. Diehl and Boettcher decided to move the business to the Diehl farm north of Northbranch. A new office was con- structed by Dennis Manning in an ex- isting metal building. Storage tanks for the fertilizer and chemicals are lo- cated north of the metal building and new scales were installed. The build- ing, tanks and scales are protected to the north by a cedar tree windbreak. A 60-foot flag pole was installed in front of the bui Iding to di spl."y the American Flag, which is spotlighted. Don Diehl, Mac's father, helps with the business and family farming op- eration. Don lives just north of Burr Oak, so t~nilizer tanks can be taken and left north of his house to help those customers who live closer to Burr Oak. The Diehl far;n has been in the family for over 75 years, and Mac is the third generation to farm there. He decided to take on this business to enhance his farming operation, pro- vide a needed service to area farmers and provide an off-farm income. "Our goal is to grow the business to fit our needs and those in this area, i remain small enough to provide sonal service," Mac said. that as a no-til farmer, he the problems farmers are "~ with low grainiprices and high izer prices. "I believe that I'm advise them." According to Mac, he sells all t of fertilizers and offers chemical application. He is dealer. The move from Burr Oak Northbranch began last spring and~ finished by fall. Mac and his Tracie, will hold an open house customer appreciation day day at the business location, mile north of Northbranch. They were hamburgers.
