Prairie Horizons Farm
Farmer, Registered dietitian

Mary Jo Forbord is a registered dietitian, past director of the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota, and current Healthy Eating Coordinator at the University of Minnesota-Morris. She’s also a lifelong farmer and, with her husband, Luverne, raises rotationally grazed cattle on certified organic pastures and native prairie, certified organic grains and legumes, new and heritage fruits and vegetables, and medicinal plants. She’ll talk about the changing landscape of farming, the challenges of coexistence, and her vision for harmony, complete with a new “Homestead Act” to encourage more people to become farmers.
