Faces of Farming Videos

When you drive past the vast farm fields throughout this beautiful state, it can be hard to visualize the farmer that grew those crops. Here at Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board we’d like to change that fact. These bean farmers support their communities, raise their families and provide our nation and the world beyond with one of the most versatile crops on the the planet, the Soybean. Join us as we share their successes, struggles and everyday life of some of these proud farmers. We are pleased to share with you the true Faces of Farming.
