By Patrick Burke

Beaman, who farms in southwest Iowa and is a published novelist, has been a member of PFI since 1997. Says Bill:

We’ve been looking for some different farming systems other than corn-soybeans, corn-soybeans, ways to better market our products and take care of our land. That seems to be what PFI stands for – sustainable farming and sustainable communities. It’s been a real asset to us.

You can read more about Beaman’s Grazier Farm in this interview from last January, or at his website, The Iowa Farmer.
