Advocating for Family Farmers

"Spend Just One Day with Me on the Farm"

Darby Knoll grew up showing her family’s cattle each year at the South Dakota State Fair. She relished the opportunity to talk with visitors from all over about Knoll Family Farm’s humane and sustainable practices.

As she got older and learned more about the challenges facing fellow family farmers, she became sure that she wanted to pursue a career in agriculture. 

“Each year, we would hear family farmers saying ‘it’s not working, and we’re going to sell,’” Darby tells Food Tank. “It was heartbreaking. That’s when I decided that I wanted to get more involved in agriculture and be an advocate, be a voice to say things need to change.”
