Women Impacting the Land 2016 - Jean Driscoll

Jean Driscoll and her late husband, George, started farming with lots of time but not much money, often seeking help from local extension specialists. The couple started no-till in the 1970s – a huge success for them. As their farming operation grew, Driscoll continued to participate in extension farm management courses. Today, she and two sons farm 1,300 acres of corn and soybeans, and operate a farrow to finish swine herd with 350 sows.
