DELAVAN — As a lifelong resident of Delavan, Eric Diekhoff has seen a lot of changes in the community of about 1,700 people.

A former corn and soybean farmer, Diekhoff is now the general manager of the Revolution Cannabis-Delavan facility, a $23 million medical marijuana cultivation center in the Tazewell County community.

“It’s already been huge for Delavan and the thing is that after the program expands, it’s going to be even better for Delavan and we will have the ability to hire more people,” he said. “But we feel there are great things ahead and both this plant and this town are going to benefit.”
