Tolstoy Farm Operation Diversifies For Success

Dec 8, 2014

Eric Johannsen is a fourth-generation farmer/rancher/outfitter near Tolstoy. He, along with his father and brother, operate their 5000 acres which have been in the family since the 1920s using a highly managed and sophisticated combination of no-till farming of corn and wheat, CRP grasslands, natural sloughs, wooded shelter belts and food plots.  The land generates profits and maximizes wildlife populations.  SDPB's Joe Tlustos visited the Johannsen's operation last week.
