BECK'S WHY I FARM ROADTRIP - INDIANA FARMERS, Scott & Jenn Sands

It’s been said that farming isn’t a job, it’s a way of life. That’s certainly true for the Sands family in Indiana. For Scott, Jennifer and their growing family, the farming lifestyle goes back to 1846, when their family farm began. “There’s a history there for sure.” Scott reflects. “I am the seventh generation, so William and Quinn will be the eighth generation on the farm.”

Intern Avenue

Just a City Girl, Living in…Indiana.

Author: Celina Young

My hometown is not exactly a city, but with a population of over 10,000 people, I can’t really call myself a “small town girl” either. I’ve only ever lived three places in my life. Before we moved to my hometown of Waverly, Iowa, we lived 20 minutes to the south in Waterloo (which really is a city), and as a student at Iowa State University, I live in the bustling college town of Ames. Now I find myself somewhere completely new.

Having never lived outside of Iowa, moving eight hours away from home to intern for Beck’s has been a little scary. Now that I have lived in Indiana for about a month, I have made a few observations.

Curveballs of the 2014 Crop

This past week’s travels have taken me about 2,000 miles from central IN, to northern IL, southern OH, northern OH, and northeastern IN. It’s been a big week! As strange as our weather has been lately, and as variable as crops look, I thought it would be beneficial to share not only pictures, but some agronomic information from this week’s journey.

Why I Farm: Behind the Movement

A Company With A Heartbeat

Faith. Christianity. God. Normally you wouldn’t see these words on a company blog, but I can type them proudly. And it’s not just because I am a Christian. It’s because I work for a family-owned company, Beck’s Hybrids. Maybe you don’t remember from my first blog, but I absolutely love my job. Not only do I love what I do, I love who I work for, what the Beck family stands for, and how they’re not afraid to share their beliefs.
