Ep 140: Farming Around the World

My guest today is Franck Groeneweg, a farmer that has one amazing story. Franck grew up in France, moved to Iowa, then Canada, and now Montana, farming all along the way. In our interview today, Franck and I chat about his background, why he and his family practice regenerative agriculture, the importance of building relationships with other farmers, and much, much more!

Here is a great write up on our guest today, Franck Groeneweg:

All the world is a wheat field. At least, that’s how it has looked to Franck and Kari Groeneweg, owners of Living Sky Grains. 

Before arriving in Three Forks, Montana, the Groenewegs were on a quest to find the farm of their dreams. Along the way, they dirtied their boots on farms in France, Canada, and across the United States. Theirs is a story of commitment to family, to regenerative agriculture, and giving back to the earth as much, or more, than the crops they harvest.
