Five generations of O'Hairs find success diversifying their farming business
The O'Hair family is in its fifth generation of being in the farming business.
The family runs O'Hair Family Farms in Van Wert, which encompasses about 3,000 acres in a 25-mile radius covering parts of Missouri and Decatur and Clarke counties in Iowa. Their farm is nearly into Wayne County.
Jim O'Hair, 63, is the fourth-generation farmer. His great-grandfather arrived in 1902 and, 10 years later, bought land to farm. When he got out of college, he bought land from his grandmother. He's now been farming more than 40 years.
