Steve and Becky Camp

Enhancing Crop Diversity in LaCrosse, WA Steve and Becky Camp are growing oilseeds and peas in an area that traditionally grows just winter wheat, spring wheat, and spring barley. They also make their own biodiesel from camelina. Steve and Becky’s experimentation is guided by holistic management, with goals of building soil quality and reducing long-term risk. “If each of those rotations has a direct advantage to the soil health, then I’m going to leave this farm in much better shape.”
