This includes facilitating their successful completion of FCC’s Advanced Governance Series training, an unparalleled development program designed for cooperatives, which combines courses on leadership decision-making along with high-caliber interaction with peers and
subject matter experts.

Every member of our board is an active farm operator and producer, while our leadership team brings extensive experience and perspective from various sectors, including agriculture, consulting, and technology. We invite you to learn more about our leadership team and board
