Thor Oechsner and hired help
Thor Oechsner grew up often visiting his uncle's dairy farm, and as a teenager he was already growing corn in his parents yard. He started his own farm in 1993. He now grows a variety of grains on his land, and has helped mentor countless new farmers throughout the area. Thor has been instrumental in reviving local organic grain production throughout the region. He grows most of the wheat, rye, and buckwheat for our bread.
