During their first year, the Gerbers cultivated and planted 160 acres of wheat, hay and potatoes.  While the family still cultivates hay and wheat, they also raise registered Angus cattle on the property.  Several historic structures from 1915 still stand on the property, none of which are currently in use.  These include the house, the barn, several sheds, and a blacksmith shop.
