Boucher hopes to build off of last year

DWIGHT – With a stretch of nice weather this week, northern Livingston County farmer Matt Boucher feels things are about to “get crazy” out in the fields.


Boucher, who farms near Dwight, is hoping to build off the success of last season when he experienced some of his best corn yields. Though he didn’t break records, Boucher was close. Boucher is also hopeful for decent prices this year.


“You always want a good year but you want to be profitable as well,” Boucher told The Central Illinois Farm Network.


Boucher plants corn, soybeans and occasionally wheat. He is also into cover crops along with no-till and strip-till practices. The Bouchers have a true family farming operation.


“I’ve got three kids of my own who are involved in some way, shape or form on the farm,” Boucher explained.


What started out as a 4-H project for his daughter turned into local sales of pork, chicken and eggs.


“We are busy and pretty well rounded but everything we do is run by our family all the way around.”
