James Carmichael was the first to farm Maplehurst in 1909 with 80 acres north of Rochelle on Route 64. Maplehurst (which was named for the many maple trees which lined the property at one time) has seen unprecedented changes in agriculture, technology and politics. The Maple Hurst Stock Farm evolved from a small grain and livestock farm into a large grain, fertilizer, and trucking facility. The caliber of the people who have owned, staffed, and operated Maplehurst over the years have made all of the difference in ensuring its current success. Today, LD's children and grandchildren help operate the thriving agribusiness. Maplehurst Farms now has multiple locations to serve you all across north central Illinois.
