In 1890, Mark Jackson’s great-great-great-grandfather bought a plot of land in southern Iowa. Five generations later, Mark is still farming that same land but using some very different techniques. In this moving story that crosses generations, Mark shows us both how radically agriculture has changed since that time, and the ways some things have stayed exactly the well as new innovative ways of lighting.

Mark Jackson is CEO of Jackson Farms LS, Inc and currently serves as a National Director of the American Soybean Association. He is a fifth generation Iowa farmer who practices sustainable production and environmental responsibility in his modern family farming operations. He was one of the original farmers who pioneered sustainable soybean farming with Unilever.
