Natural is Better
As a young boy growing up on a small dairy and hog operation, Lamar's father farmed organically not because of the market but because of his feelings of the best way to farm. Lamar has been in the feed business 12 years and several years ago was able to purchase the Wolcottville feed mill.The switch to making the Wolcottville mill a certified organic mill was a easy transition for Lamar as this method of agriculture was instilled in him by his father.
As the local organic industry, along with the mill continued to grow, Lamar came to a critical and difficult decision. The local community was once again thriving with the growth in certified organic farms, and the presence of Organic Valley Cooperative in the area. Lamar approached local leaders regarding the possibility of forming a cooperative for the sale of the Wolcottville Organic Feed Mill. Lamar looks forward to the continuing support of local community assisting WOLF Cooperative in becoming a strong financial partner in the local economy.
