French Creek Organic Farm
This fifth-generation family farm owned by Andy Leppert has been farmed organically since the late ’70s when Andy’s father realized the benefits of organic farming to the soil and the environment. They stayed committed to these practices even though there was no organic certification at the time. In 1994 they became a member of Organic Valley in LaFarge Wisconsin and received their first organic certification and have been organic certified ever since. In 2013 they transitioned away from organic dairy to diversify their field crops. When hemp was approved for growing in Iowa in 2020 it was only natural for them to add hemp to their farm.
