*Virtual* Field Day 2020: July 18

Our annual Grain Place Foundation Field Day gives guests an opportunity to tour the farm and grain processing plant in the morning and to join us for an afternoon program with our keynote speaker; this year, the whole Field Day is going online. This makes it even easier for us to welcome more farmers, supporters of regenerative agriculture, and curious people who want to know more.

We are excited to welcome Brise Tencer as our keynote speaker. Brise is Executive Director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation. Her talk will be followed by a panel discussion of the local application/impact of the work of OFRF. Bill Whitney of the Prairie Plains Resource Institute and Graham Christensen of GC Resolve will serve on the panel (in addition to Brise).

Virtual Tour the Grain Place Farm and Grain Place Foods

Our Field Day gives you a chance to take an up-close view of The Grain Place’s long-term experiment in organic farming. See our 9-year field rotation up close! We are eager to show and share what we have been learning about farming for the health of the soil. See the permaculture and forestry additions we’ve been working on, too. Whether it’s your introduction to organic farming or a chance to look with a lifetime of experience, we are eager to have you as a part of our morning farm tour.

Grain Place Foods, Inc. (our grain processing facility onsite) invites you to join us for a morning plant tour during this year’s Field Day. Come see how the Grain Place Foods products you love are produced. From what machinery is used for cleaning to what tests we run in our onsite laboratory, the plant tour will increase your confidence in our core belief that from planting to packaging: How Your Food is Produced Does Matter!

Field Day brings together farmers, local people interested in organics, industry leaders and much more. When you choose to be a part of Field Day, you become a part of the farm community, even as we gather virtually.

We are currently seeking Sponsors for Field Day 2020. Your donations support not only the Field Day event, but enable the ongoing work of the Grain Place Foundation.
