Eric Leicht

Eric farms 4,000 acres that yield abundant harvests of wheat, oat, flax and a variety of lentils. Keeping the soil healthy on the Leicht family farm near Spalding involves crop rotation, plowing nutrient-rich plants into the soil, and providing time for nature to renew the land by allowing acreage to lie fallow . “Soil is what makes your crops. That’s the farmer’s best friend.”
