Livestock and Crops: Leon Stangl’s Specialty Crop Operation

Leon Stangl is a Montana farmer whose Yourganic Farm produces a diverse selection of vegetables and directly sells its produce through CSAs and local markets. To add diversity and interest, each year he trials a new crop to test for hardiness and marketability. Animals are also an integral part of the farm, providing weed suppression, tilling, manure for compost, and meat for sale. According to Leon, “The diversity of our farm, with vegetables and animals, stabilizes our work load and cash flow throughout the year.”
