About the Event

Join us for the Premier Soil Health School 2024, hosted by Grant and Dawn Breitkreutz at their innovative farm in Redwood Falls, MN!

Grant and Dawn are pioneers in regenerative agriculture, transforming their family's conventional corn and soybean operation into a diverse, sustainable farm ecosystem. Their journey began in 2000 when they took over the farm from Grant's parents. Today, Stoney Creek Farm is a model of regenerative practices, integrating cash crops, cover crops, and rotational grazing of cattle to build soil health and biodiversity.

The Breitkreutz's commitment to soil health extends far beyond their farm:

• Grant serves on the Board of the Minnesota Soil Health Coalition

• Dawn is a board member of the Redwood County Corn and Soybean Growers Association

Their innovative approach has earned them numerous accolades:

• 2020 Outstanding Conservationists of the Year for Redwood County

• 2019 Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certified Farm

This hands-on, in-depth learning experience will teach you how to build your soil's health, covering:

The school takes place on July 16-17 at the Breitkreutz's 1,800-acre farm, where you'll see firsthand how they've implemented these practices to improve soil structure, increase water retention, and boost crop resilience.
