Edible Radio’s Kate Manchester talks with Fred about his role at the Leopold Center, and how farms are no longer defined by size, either by acres or gross sales, these are the new “sustainable farms in the middle.” Listen here >> Edible Radio episode #14: Fred Kirschenmann <<

Fred Kirschenmann is a outspoken advocate for the sustainable agriculture movement. He is a distinguished fellow of the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, is currently President of the Board of Directors for the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, and the president of Kirschenmann Family Farms, a 3,500-acre certified organic farm in Windsor, North Dakota.

Fred’s resume doesn’t read like your average farmer: he served a five-year term on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Standards Board, and has chaired the administrative council for the USDA’s North Central Region’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program. He recently completed work for the North Dakota Commission on the Future of Agriculture, and was a charter member of the Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society in 1979. He has been a member of the board of directors for the Henry A. Wallace Institute for Alternative Agriculture since 1994, and was president in 1997.

Related: The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) recently announced four winners of its second annual “Growing Green” awards, which honor leaders in the sustainable-food world. Fred Kirschenmann, was awarded “thought leader” honors. Read Tom Philpott’s interview with Fred >> on Grist <<.
