Will Allen

Hey everyone, welcome back to Kiss the Ground. I’m am beyond excited for today’s episode. Our guest is . Will began farming organically in the Santa Barbara area in 1968 and was one of the first-ever organic farmers in the San Joaquin Valley. 

All of his stories are so impressive, it’s almost hard to believe one man could accomplish all he has in one lifetime. From his time in the Marine Corps to his devotion to farming the right way, Will’s character is overwhelmingly inspiring. 

In 2000, he took over the management of Cedar Circle Farm in East Thetford, Vermont. While in Vermont, Will fought for the labeling of all GMO products. And in 2014, his tenacious activism paid off as Vermont became the first state in the US to pass a GMO labeling law. 

This is one of the best conversations I’ve ever had and I’m so proud to present it to our audience today. Please enjoy my conversation with Will Allen.
