Martens Farm and Lakeview Organic Grain
Penn Yan, NY
At the ripe old age of 23, Peter Martens farms 450 acres of organic crops including: barley, wheat, rye, spelt, corn, soybeans, and dry beans.
In 2012 Peter worked for 6 months on an organic farm north of Hamburg, Germany. This experience opened his eyes to the different farming methods in Germany. The farming equipment is expensive but very versatile and efficient.
Peter and his dad Klaas Martens have been growing 2-Row Winter Barley for us since 2010.
