Meet Danielle Haefner & Get Involved with the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund

The Future Organic Farmer Grant winners were judged to have the strongest combination of commitment to leading a lifelong career in organic agriculture, investment and participation in the organic community, and dedication to growing the organic movement. Each grant recipient will receive $2,500 to apply toward their studies in organic agriculture.

In the future, Danielle Haefner hopes to take over managing a small ag operation on her family's farmland in Wisconsin. While the land has been in her family for four generations, Haefner’s great-grandfather was the only family member to focus on agriculture. When he stopped raising black angus in the early 1970s, the farm was transitioned to large scale row crop production. Haefner would like to be the force that changes the path of this land for the better. She believes it needs to be holistically tended to and revived and she would like to do this by rotationally grazing a small-scale livestock operation (in addition to just a few other projects).
 
Congratulations Danielle!
