We talk at length about the difficulties in farming. Relationships are key when you are trying to make it in this business. However, when you are starting out, it is even harder to forge those necessary relationships which will allow you to be successful. Finding a seed dealer you can trust is vital to the future of your operation.
Audio: Full Interview with Farmer Kevin Poppel at Commodity Classic
Kevin Poppel is a first-generation farmer, just across the border by Albert Lea, MN. Kevin’s Uncle decided it was time to get out of farming and offered Kevin the chance to take over. Kevin says the experience can be a challenge, but it is also rewarding.
Poppel says even if you have grown up on a farm, the decision-making process may be completely new to you. It can be even more difficult if you are farming in a different part of the state or country. This makes your relationships even more vital.
Poppel says his relationship with his Channel Seeds dealer has been an essential partnership.
