Currently, Dale and his wife Sunny are working with lawyer Karl Knudson to transfer their own farm in northeast Iowa to their heirs in a manner that is equitable, affordable and farmable.

Host: Dale Nimrod

He and his siblings sold their 240-acre farm to a local couple as a way to give back to the community that had supported his family and helped them farm after the untimely death of their father. Dale and Sunny live on their farm near Decorah. In 2015, Dale and his siblings received Practical Farmers’ Farmland Owner Legacy Award.
