--- FEATURED FARMER ---
Erin Stickel is a farmer from Wood County, located in Northwest Ohio. Erin's family runs a diversified farming operation that consists of corn, soybeans, wheat, tomatoes, hay, straw, breeding cows, and a cattle feedlot. Each entity of the business is critical to the success of the next.
Erin's husband, Andy, and his brother, Brian, manage the day to day operations of the
business while Erin manages her own business as a financial advisor with New York Life. Erin is involved in the long-term planning, marketing and public relations for the farm.
While hectic at many times throughout the year, the group works diligently to grow and feed highly quality grains and proteins with the utmost respect for the land and water they are entrusted to care for.
Erin and her family welcome questions and conversations regarding animal agriculture in Ohio and the surrounding areas and are looking forward to hosting this virtual tour.
