It seems organic land is a top priority for one of North America’s leading all natural cereal manufacturers, with Nature’s Path purchasing 2,760 acres in Northern Montana to bring in a fleet of fresh farmers to raise all-natural legumes.
Founder and CEO Arran Stephens said “by purchasing fertile land and working with organic family farmers, we ensure the purity of our foods, increase organic acreage to sustain growth, prevent poisoning the environment and provide for future generations.”
Expected to grow by 14 percent in 2018, organic farmland is a hot commodity. A vital element to ensure organic farmland and food for generations to come is attracting and training a new generation of farmers. Doug Crabtree and Anna Jones-Crabtree of Vilicus Farms, are now on board with the all natural agency, not only farming fresh but also supporting the company’s one-of-a-kind organic training institute in Montana.
According to Dag Falck, an organic program manager at Nature’s Path, the partnership between the company and Vilicus Farms is a fruitful endeavor. “Working with Doug and Anna, we hope to attract younger farmers and prepare them for successful careers. We have the utmost respect for organic farmers and are truly dedicated to assisting them in any way we can.”
