After decades of “rocky” farming, Idaho family behind 7B Ranch find a sustainable solution
The Idaho Farm Bureau introduces us to the Beck Family, the fourth-generation family behind 7B Ranch in Port
Over the last hundred years, 7B Ranch in Post Falls, Idaho, has had four generations taking care of the property. The state’s Farm Bureau introduces us to the Beck Family who continue to care for the land.
The family has struggled to farm their land for decades due to large rocks in the soil that break farming equipment. Finally, the family was able to secure a partnership with a local concrete company who remove the rocks and repurpose them so that the Beck family is able to recover the mined land for farming.
Now, that project is obviously a big undertaking, but the Becks say that it is their responsibility as farmers to take the best care of the land with a long-term vision...and to do so, you might have to sacrifice some of today for a better tomorrow.
