Strange Odor In Isabella County Likely Coming From Local Farm

If you live in Isabella County, you may smell something strange in the air today.

Central dispatch says it’s likely coming from a farm growing radishes.

Farmers often plant the vegetables as a cover crop and during winter warm ups, the radishes give off a rotten egg, or natural gas smell.

The farm was also spreading chicken manure today.

If you are in Mount Pleasant, or on the west side of Isabella County, it’s likely from a nearby farm, and the smell will probably stick around for a short time.
