Jeanie Igl, Hawkins Homestead

Jeanie Igl of Hawkins Homestead has seen both sides of succession planning. She and her husband Tony farmed with her parents, Sid and Carol Hawkins since 1991 and took over the reins for the centennial farm in 2021. They are now navigating the transition of the 2500-acre crop farm to their daughter and son-in-law, Amanda and Christian, while being fair to another daughter, Stephanie, who works on the farm, and daughters Samantha and Christina, who are off the farm.
