Building Your Farm’s Brand

Farming has become a practice of sustainability, and farmers want consumers to start noticing. Building a farm brand may be the next step in revolutionizing farming.

In an article from, author Jessie Scott writes about Reid and Carla Weiland, farmers who have created a brand for their farm. Scott writes, “This past August, Reid and Carla Weiland hosted Senator Joni Ernst on their Garner, Iowa, farm as part of the senator’s 99-county tour. This visit didn’t stem from Reid Weiland’s political connections or from Weiland Farms’ reputation, although the latter did help with the process.
