Levi and Crystal Neuharth aren’t putting all their eggs in the one basket — and in their case that isn’t a cliché.

The Neuharths operate Prairie Paradise Farms, Fort Pierre, S.D., where they manage about 2,000 acres of cropland and 3,000 acres of rangeland. Diversification in all things — crops, livestock and even their garden — is a big part of their business strategy. It’s also an important part of their soil health and sustainability efforts.
