Grand View Beef | Clarion, Iowa

SeversonWhy do you want to farm?

We love the lifestyle, and we desire to continue what the generations before us have created so that we might be able to pass it on to the next generation.

What are you farming right now?   

We raise 100% grass fed beef and sell directly to the end consumer through farmer’s markets, events, and our website.

What’s your vision for your farm?

To sustainably grow in such a way that we’re able to improve the soil, convert row crops to pasture, and secure a strong financial future for our family and farm.

Why do you want to participate in this program?

We have had a lot of capital investments since we began in 2017, which makes cash flow hard. We desire to have savings so that we’re prepared for future down payments on capital investments and/or so that we no longer need large operating loans.
