Madison, Minnesota

This free field tour sponsored by the University of Minnesota is an opportunity for growers, processors, businesses, and others to learn more about Kernza® and its environmental benefits and economic opportunities. Carmen Fernholz of A-Frame Farm, has been growing Kernza since 2011. A-Frame Farm manager, Luke Peterson, started growing and marketing Kernza in 2018, and now manages 30+ acres of the UMN variety, MN-Clearwater. In 2020, Carmen, Luke, and Kernza growers across Minnesota formed a co-op called Perennial Promise Growers Co-op (PPGC). Carmen, Luke, and others from PPGC will share the vision for the co-op and how they are working with industry and researchers to grow, market, and champion Kernza.
