"All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth, befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” - Chief Seattle. When it comes to our food, there is a divine presence in nature that cannot be denied.

The good health of the environment has afforded human beings the luxury of organic sustainable nourishment long before mankind decided to perfect what has already been perfected by nature with the introduction of GMO’s. Only with good soil health can we produce the life giving food which we need as humans to survive. With the relentless goal to please shareholders, regardless of the potential and proven catastrophic effects, the agro-chemical companies have pushed their propaganda, insisting that without their technology, we will not be able to produce enough food to feed what they claim is an overpopulated world. While most people are somewhat familiar with GMO’s, the companion technology, neonicotinoids, makes them one dynamic duo that makes their existence in nature sheer ecocide: a crime against all living beings. Organic agricultural leaders such as David Vetter have been advocating organics for decades. Organic agriculture is not only better for the environment but is better for human health and is more economic. David is the past president of the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA), contributed to the development of organic standards, has conducted organic farm and processor inspections, and has reviewed applications and inspections for certification domestically and internationally. Dave now runs Grain Place Foods milling. He received a BS in agronomy from UNL and Masters in Divinity. Although he never intended to be a preacher, Dave sees a connection between farming and spirituality. Dave has built the business into a $4.2 million enterprise with 21 employees.
