Growing Organic Expertise with DMACC at Aaron Lehman’s Farm in Polk City
Aaron Lehman will host DMACC students and others interested in learning more about the U.S. organic movement, the National Organic Program, Midwest organic production options and a range of resources that support organic transition and certification.
Aaron is President of the Iowa Farmers Union and a fifth-generation farmer where he and his family grow corn, soybeans, oats, and hay in both organic and conventional rotations. In the mid-2000s, he and his dad decided to try something different from the traditional two-crop system and began to explore certified organic production to diversify the land and improve sustainability, while increasing net revenue.
This is a free field day, and open to the public.
