Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Marty Schnicker, of Schnicker Specialties, shares how he and his family raise prize-winning giant pumpkins during a field day they hosted on the farm.
Learn how Greg Rebman and Luke Jones worked together to combine knowledge and skill sets, overcome challenges and develop a profitable contract grazing partnership. We will see a field of wheat underseeded with clover that is a part of PFI’s small-grains cost-share program. Greg will also talk about the importance of supporting young farmers and cultivating healthy landowner-tenant relationships.
