Your local extension office should have a place to drop off soil samples. It may cost a couple bucks.

It really depends on how you intend to make any soil amendments. If you take the commercial/chemical approach the Penn State Cooperative extension tests will do. If you intend to use organic methods, Fertrell in Bainbridge, PA offers testing and the results would give recommendations for adding natural/organic ammendments. The Whitetail Institute offers soil testing which gives results and recommendations more directed at food plot type seeding.

Last time I did it we shipped it off to Penn State, and I think it was less than 10 bucks. They had us dig in several spots, mix it all together, bag it up and away she goes, very easy.

Take a sample from each corner and one from the middle of the plot and mix it together.

Agway will also ship it to PSU for about 12 bucks.

Add Biologic to the list. Sometimes places like Biologic and Whitetail inst work well for plotters because it's easy to match the crops
