DAC Farms owns and/or operates around 3400 acres of cropland in southern Illinois. All of this cropland is used for the purposes of growing field corn, soybeans, and winter wheat. Mostly a corn to soybean rotation year to year is followed. Farming is a year-round operation, but busier times occur in spring planting and fall harvest. (March-May), (September-October). “DAC” is an acronym for “Doug, Arthur, Clement.” The farm is owned and operated by these members and their heirs. Doug, Arthur, Hans, Craig, and Barry are actively involved. Read more about our history here.
