The Frieders Family

Across Illinois, the landscape is dotted with farms. On each and every acre there are crops and the hard-working farm families who nurture them. No two acres are the same, and neither are the farmers who tend to them. Their stories are unique. This is one of them.

ISA is proud to launch Illinois Soy Stories, a docuseries featuring some of Illinois' many farm families. In this first video in the series, Ryan Frieders, a seventh-generation farmer from Waterman, Illinois, and his family share their story.
