Portage County Soil and Water


935 Industry Rd


When I bought this 10 acre property 20 plus years ago, it didn’t have a single tree on it. I have personally planted over 200 trees.

All 10 of our Grandchildren have caught their first fish in this pond as well as many other kids. Hoping our Great Grandchildren can do the same. (1st, 2nd & 3rd pic same kid)
