Meet Joshua Dransfield & Get Involved with the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund

Joshua Dransfield

Joshua Dransfield’s future career goals include continuing his family’s organic dairy farm tradition, increasing his family’s herd size, and obtaining additional rental land to certify organic. He would also like to diversify and raise organic beef cattle and develop a market for his steers. Dransfield would like to continue his relationship with Organic Valley, his family’s current milk cooperative, and take advantage of trainings and travel opportunities so that he can continue to learn more about organic farming practices. 

Dransfield is using his Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund grant to finish his education at the University of Tennessee Martin. He will graduate in December 2019 with a degree in farm and ranch management. Dransfield also plans to use his grant to participate in conferences and meetings to learn from other organic farmers. 

Congratulations Joshua!

Please join us in congratulating the recipients of the CCOF Foundation’s Future Organic Farmer Grants.
