REDWOOD FALLS (LEARFIELD) – The conservation efforts of a southwest Minnesota farm family have landed them on the cover of a Wheaties Box.
Grant and Dawn Breitkreutz (Brike-Rights) own Stoney Creek Farm where they raise crops and red Angus cattle near Redwood Falls. Grant says General Mills contacted his family earlier this year to see about visiting their farm:
“We’ve hosted them on our farm to show them what we do with no till cover crops and improving soil health,” said Grant Breitkreutz.
To say thank you, Wheaties recently featured Grant and Dawn on the cover of a box of Wheaties. Dawn says it’s more than just an honor for them though.
“I just think it brings awareness to families out there that are working really hard, to see the industry is paying attention, says Dawn Breitkreutz. “It really means a lot.”
General Mills has pledged to advance regenerative agriculture on one million acres of farmland by 2030.
