Tim Raile’s roots in St. Francis, Kansas go deep. He and his son, Michael, are the 4th and 5th generation to operate the now 8,500 acre Raile Farm that spans the Kansas and Colorado border. After a couple decades of conventional no-till corn and wheat production, Tim decided to start slowly transitioning his ground to organic in 2015. In this wide-ranging conversation, we talk about the reasoning behind his transition, dig into the shifts in thinking and management required and also touch on getting involved in organic policy and what priorities we should be working on at the nation’s capital, among other topics. Thanks for tuning in.
