> Snapshot Series: Transitioning to Value Added Enterprises - Gaukel Grown and Ground


The Snapshot Series examines how traditionally direct marketing farmers are using value added enterprises to supplement and expand their agri-businesses, reaching new markets and consumers through the development of new products. Husband and wife team Kevin and Julie Gaukel supplement income from their livestock business by processing, marketing, and selling stone-ground whole wheat products from their 320 acres of wheat crop. Products include mixes for a variety of breads, pancakes, muffins, and cereal. Their products are now available at their online store, at local farmers markets, and at grocery stores around the country.
