Bio

Brian and Karen Severson are the fifth generation to have a small family farm in Grundy county Illinois (80 miles south-west of Chicago), where they raise organic and non-GMO grains. Unhappy with the introduction of GMOs and the direction agriculture was heading in the 1990s, Brian started experimenting with organic methods. They raised their first certified organic sweet corn in 2007. The Seversons also began growing organic oats, various food corns, wheat, popcorn, peas, soybeans and buckwheat. Brian tries to select varieties based on taste, which many times leads to using heirloom varieties, and they save their own seeds whenever possible. Over the years with the addition of more grain cleaning equipment, a stone grist mill, roller mill, etc. the Seversons can not only grow but can also clean the grains so they are suitable for consumer use. They process them into various flours, rolled oats, and meals right on their farm. Everything they raise is non-GMO and most of the food grains are certified organic. The Severson’s four teenagers (pictured)—Luke, Seth, Joel, and Sarah — work on the farm when not busy with school, with some additional help from their friends.
