Triple B Family Farms is a fourth-generation farm owned and operated by Don Boehm and his wife Kathy, along with their 2 sons, Matt and Brad. They farm a total 1,200 acres in southwest Hancock County. Growing up in the era when everything was plowed and seeing the wind and soil erosion, it helped to instill the importance of conservation practices to improve our soils for future generations.
Among the many conservation practices in the H2Ohio program that they employ, overwintering cover crops were first used in 2009 through the EQIP Program and by 2012 all of the soybeans were planted in a rye cover crop. They began including the Voluntary Nutrient Management Plan with Variable Rate Fertilizer Applications by strip tilling with subsurface fertilizer placement in 2018 ahead of corn and 2020 ahead of wheat.
Since 2015, with the guidance of Hancock Soil and Water Conservation District, they have tiled 3 farms and incorporated numerous waterways to minimize soil erosion.
