DavisWhy do you want to farm?

I would like to be an example of how production agriculture can be conservation-driven while being profitable. I find farming to be very interesting, and it’s fun to look at farming from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

What are you farming right now?   

Currently the operation is a corn and soybean rotation using never till and cereal rye cover crops between both crops.

What’s your vision for your farm?

I envision our farm to be regenerative and sustainable long-term while being profitable.  I envision growing diverse crops and having clean water and wildlife.

Why do you want to participate in this program?

Not having a foraml ag-business degree I see this as a way to help me with all of the questions I have related to farming and the business side.
