Description/Notes: 

Ted and Julia Wycall have transformed Greenbranch Farm, a former commodity farm where corn, soybeans and confinement chickens had been raised by Ted's grandfather, into a diversified organic operation with a retail marketing model. All their sales come through retail/direct marketing channels, i.e., farmers markets, a CSA with more than 200 subscribers, and an on-farm store. Their farm story includes tailoring their diverse product line, which includes produce and meats to attract the retail customer, pursuing methods that have relatively low start-up costs, and using production techniques that enhance long-term soil fertility.
