Farm Manager Spotlight: Jaret Wicker

August 20, 2013
When Jaret Wicker first met with the Soy Capital Ag Services team led by President Don McCabe, he already was aware of the company’s solid reputation for farm management.  The Rushville, Ind., grain and livestock farm native had moved to Illinois in 2009, and joined Soy Capital in 2010 as a farm manager in the Kankakee office. “I was impressed that Soy Capital is such a client- and relationship focused business. Farm managers all work in the best interest of heir clients in helping them reach their goals,” he says. Since joining Soy Capital, Wicker has assumed more than 8,000 acres under his management from as far north as the Wisconsin border and throughout the northern third of Illinois. Wicker holds real estate licenses in both Illinois and Indiana and is a member of the American Society and Illinois Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. He is currently working on his Accredited Farm Manager designation and is the Soy Capital website administrator. “Soy Capital provides an opportunity for me to do something different every day. This is not a 9-5 job, and I enjoy working with a variety of clients to manage their unique goals and challenges,” he says. “Clients will find we take a team approach to managing their operations. Soy Capital has been in business a long time, and our local relationships really benefit clients.” Wicker has a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University in agricultural systems management with minors in animal science and agribusiness management. He previously worked for a bank in Indiana, providing financial services to clients in southeastern Indiana as an agriculture and commercial lender. Contact Wicker at or 815-936-8978.
