No-till producer, Waverly, KS
Darin and Nancy Williams live in Waverly, KS. Their 2,000-acre operation includes a complex rotation of non-GMO corn and soybeans, grain sorghum, cereal crops such as wheat, triticale, rye and barley, and cover crops that include sudangrass, millet and sunflowers. They also raise grass-fed British White cattle and Katahdin hair sheep, as well as small flocks of heritage turkeys and chickens — both broilers and layers. They purchased the cattle in 2013 and have grown to about 70 head, with the hope to raise many of the animals to sell as direct market, grass-fed beef.
