Our Values

By Teresa Opheim

PFI’s Board of Directors has just approved values statements for our organization! Our Strategic Directions Committee developed these values for Board approval, using statements first articulated by one of our founding members, Ron Rosmann, almost 25 years ago. I hope you find them as inspiring as I do…

We value ingenuity, exploration, experience, and sharing of knowledge for solving on-farm challenges.

We value diverse and independent farm operations that are integrated with and enhance the earth’s ecosystems.

We value an agriculture that is economically and ecologically sustainable and built on a fair market system.

We value widespread ownership of land and resources.

We value commitment to family, community and the celebration of wholesome food.
