The Carroll Family has been farming in Hancock County, Illinois for five generations with three generations currently active. Darel Carroll took over for his father in the 1950s and gradually increased the land base. Sons David and Dan entered the operation in the late 1970s, and the expansion accelerated. The operation continues to expand the swine and grain operation from year-to-year and as new members of the family enter the business. A mix of wisdom and experience from the older generation combined with the energy and enthusiasm of the younger generation contribute to the continued success of this family business.
