Alex Fiock helps farmers in northern Indiana and Ohio understand the practices they might implement to better their soil health as a Field Manager for the Soil Health Partnership. He also oversees farm economics work for SHP.
A graduate of Purdue University, Alex majored in natural resource environmental science with a focus in agronomy and soil science. He spent summers at Purdue interning with local ag retail locations, and worked in seed sales after graduation, covering 15 Indiana counties.
Alex is still actively involved in his family farming operation in Bluffton, Indiana, where he was raised and now resides with his wife Rachel and their two children. The farm grows popcorn, corn and soybeans. Alex credits his grandfather for fostering his love of farming and his interest in soil.
