Mae Petrehn

Production Protocol Manager

As the Production Protocol Manager with Dakotas Best Seed and SecurCrop Organics, Mae’s goal is to provide growers with relevant technical knowledge about organic systems. Part of her position is to coordinate our Transition Toolkit program, guiding growers through the organic transition process. Her background is in organic certification and inspection, feedlot compliance, ranch management and grazing planning. In 2011, she completed an M.S. in Sustainable Agriculture from Iowa State University. Mae believes that organic industry offers opportunities for farms to diversify and be compensated for their land stewardship, and hopes she can be part of accessing organic easier for growers all over the Midwest. To stay busy Mae runs a pastured sheep enterprise on her farm outside of New London, MN while updating an ancient farmhouse. With any free time left, she loves reading, improving her dog training skills with her border collie Zak, and hunting with her partner Shon.
