George farms with three generations on his family farm near Vesta, Minnesota. George and his wife Jenifer farm with his dad Joseph and son Jordan, although his other children, Joshua, Jasmine and Jayden, help out when they can. George farms corn and soybeans, sells seed, and has a local trucking operation. He also is active in his community where he is a volunteer fireman, a member of the Vesta Lions, a member of the board of directors for Highwater Ethanol, a director of the Minnesota Corn Promotion and Research Council and the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association. He has also been an ASA director for the past five years where he has served on several committees, most recently as vice-chair for the PAC committee, WISHH board member, and the liaison to the Soy Aquaculture Alliance.
Farming is George’s passion and he continues to work to influence legislation that affects his farming operation and those of farmers like him. He believes farmers work hard to provide safe, reliable food to consumers and that education is important so that others understand what farmers do to take care of their land for future generations who will also farm.
Besides farming, George enjoys traveling, especially when he can go scuba diving. He also likes snowmobiling, fishing, and hunting with family and friends.
