Attend the Fruit-Veg-Flower Farmer Virtual Meet-Ups: Register for the series1 of 3
Rachel Findling joined the Practical Farmers of Iowa staff in August 2020 as the new office assistant. She is currently a student at Iowa State University studying agricultural education. Her duties at PFI include helping with mailings, membership database updates, virtual event support and general office support.
Rachel is from the small town of Royal, Iowa. She grew up working with various species of livestock, such as cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. She joined 4-H and the National FFA Organization right away, and competed in and attended every competition and conference she could. Through these opportunities, Rachel saw the large impact the agricultural industry can make in the lives of youth, which inspired her to go to college to become an agricultural instructor.
Since attending Iowa State, Rachel has enjoyed planning events for different university organizations, such as Animal Learning Day and Bacon Expo, and giving tours of Iowa State’s various farms.
In her free time, you can find Rachel spending time with friends and family, cooking something new, visiting Iowa State’s Swine Teaching Farm or cruising around the back roads of Iowa.
