History of your farm

We are the third generation farming this land. Wheat has always been the predominant crop raised. We do produce peas, lentils, garbanzo beans, barley, native grass seeds, and wildflowers.

Why do you think direct seeding is important to the future of agriculture?

Along with protecting soil from erosion, we can increase soil organic matter and use less fuel farming the land.

Why are you involved with Shepherd’s Grain?

I like being a part of a group of like-minded farmers who care about the quality of the food we produce and the preservation of our most precious resource, the soil.

Why do you think it is important to develop relationships between the grower and Shepherd’s Grain customers?

It all comes down to trust and relationships. We need to build a relationship with our customers so they trust us to produce a high quality, safe, reasonably priced product for them.
