Rachel Anderson's mission is to farm efficiently and sustainably profitable at low environmental impact. This 1500-acre farm utilizes no-till, strip-till, GNSS-based application, advanced cover crop systems, and water quality monitoring. Additionally, they maintain refuge for wildlife through wetland, prairie, and oak savanna restorations. Rachel and her mother Pamela are starting a new adventure on the farm with a brand-new cut-flower business.
