Are we as good of stewards as we can be?
— Ron

Ron and Maria Rosmann are founding members of Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI), an organization started in 1985 which uses farmer-led research and information sharing that supports sustainable agriculture, benefiting the land and people. Rosmann Family Farms has conducted over 25 PFI-supported research trials and hosted numerous demonstration field days for over 30 years. See below for some of those research trials and field day events. Rosmann Family Farms is a strong supporter of PFI and is thankful for the organization and continued collaboration.
