What Producers Are Saying...

“The material presented at the Soil Health Academy was everything we were hoping to cover and then some.”


“I really enjoyed the instructor’s passion, their diversity of knowledge, and their engaging personalities.”


“The Soil Health Academy was the best 3 days in my 35 years of farming.”


"I cannot say enough about how much help the family at Seven Sons has given to me. When I decided to move to a pasture-based operation everything I knew came from reading books and watching YouTube. The ability to actually see these practices in action and have the Hitzfields as a sounding board for questions and advice has been invaluable to Tyner Pond Farm and our success." Chris Baggott (Tyner Pond Farm - Greenfield, IN


"The folks from Seven Sons have proven to be invaluable since our journey started four years ago. They understand sustainable farming, and all aspects: environmental, social, and financial. Blaine's experience with e-commerce is of tremendous value to anyone who plans to rely heavily on the internet for their marketing." Mark Grieshop (Pasture’s Delights Dairy - Decatur, IN)


Been wanting to send an email to thank you for putting on the conference. I can't tell you how inspiring it was and your willingness to share your knowledge and help other farmers is truly a blessing. It keeps us start up guys going!" Jeff Smith (The Grass Feather - Richland, MI)
