Soil Health Academy’s President
Dawn Breitkreutz, along with her husband Grant, run Stoney Creek Farm along the bluff of the Minnesota River near Redwood Falls, MN. Over the past 21 years they have converted a conventional crop and cow/calf operation into a multi-enterprise regenerative family business. They run at least a three-crop rotation, with cover crops incorporated whenever and where ever possible in their 100% no-till cropping system. They use managed intensive grazing throughout their pasture systems and their farm fields. Their overall goal is to heal the land, create a successful and enjoyable multi-generational family business, and ensure that future generations have a beautiful legacy to carry on. They strive to help educate others about regenerative agriculture through on-farm tours and classes.
Dawn is an Air Force veteran and very active with the American Legion Post #38 in Redwood Falls. She has learned to farm/ranch alongside Grant, always questioning “why” about all phases of farming. Having had no farming background, she looked at the operation through a different lens than Grant. Together they have worked hard to make the changes necessary to the future of their farm.
