Speaker Bio
Wayne farms in Kane County Illinois on the urban edge of Chicago's Western suburbs. His family farm grows the Midwest staples of corn and soybeans but has also diversified into pumpkin and hay production as well to meet local demand. Wayne believes that young farmers need to "actively look for opportunities and find a niche," in order to successfully transition into a role on the farm.
