The Beamans own and operate a livestock and grain farm located in Southwest Iowa. Purchased in 1982, the farm has survived: the "Farm Crisis" of the Eighties, a 1986 bank failure, the 1988 drought, the floods of 1993, and too many other dilemmas to mention. Through it all, the Beaman family has maintained a sustainable farming operation, raising livestock using grass-based pasture production and a grain, legume crop rotation. Their farm, like all of Iowa's farms, has a million stories to tell.
Bill Beaman loves to write and is passionate about sustainable farming operations and how they can become more accessible to new, young, beginning farmers.
