Farming and the agriculture industry have been, and continue to be, the professional life of Hall of Fame inductee Mark Ricks. In 1966 while working on the family farm, Mark, his father and uncles drilled the first deep irrigation well in Teton County.
Ricks raises about 2,200 acres of small grains (wheat and barley), 500 acres of seed potatoes and 100 acres of grass hay annual. He has worked with other seed potato growers in Teton and Madison counties in maintaining the Teton Seed Management Area, and for irrigation water management. He also served as a Madison County Commissioner.
