Doug Martin operates Martin Family Farms with his wife Erin and parents, Jeff and Jean Martin, near Mt. Pulaski, Illinois. The family raises corn and soybeans on several farms located throughout central Illinois.

Doug and Erin have been married for ten years this fall, and are in the process of raising three boys, Drew (6), Alec (3) and Luke(1). Doug returned home to farm in 1998 after graduating from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where he was a member of Alpha Gamma Rho and completed a B S. in Agriculture Production. Doug has been involved in various local and agricultural organizations. He was a 2004 graduate of The Illinois Ag Leadership Program, where he spent time in Washington D.C , China, Hong Kong, and India.

Doug was also a graduate of the 2006 Cultivating Master Farmer Program. He is past chairman of the Land of Lincoln Soil Savers, and Mt. Pulaski FFA Alumni. He currently is a director for the Logan County Soil and Water Conservation District and a member of the Mt. Pulaski CUSD #23 school board.

Erin completed her degree from Lincolnland Community College and took a job with the State of Illinois. In 2005, she made the switch to be a full time mom. She is deeply devoted to raising the three kids. Although her time is limited for farm duties at this point, she still finds time to feed all of us in the busy season, and try to keep us moving from farm to farm. She also serves as a trustee for Lake Fork township in Logan County.
