Keynote Speaker: David Vetter, Grain Place Foods: Transitioning to regenerative organic: the first 45 years. What’s next?
The Journey of our family farm “The Grain Place” to regenerative organic.
David Vetter, President and CEO of Grain Place Foods, has been living an ongoing experiment in how to grow food in a way that is both regenerative to the soil and economically viable for the people who farm.
He originally pursued a call to missionary service after college, which eventually led him back home to the family farm in Marquette, Nebraska to try farming methods that would improve the quality of the soil. That was 1975.
His steadfast commitment has driven him past innumerable challenges and obstacles to develop an infrastructure for the marketing of organic grains in our area.
The mission of Grain Place Foods is to provide to its customers grain products that are grown and produced in an ecologically sustainable and socially responsible manner – with the conviction that how your food is produced does matter!
