Brad Fernholz_profile photoWhy have you chosen to serve on the CURE Board?

I have a desire for social justice, peace, and a healthy planet for future generations.

Tell us about your vocation/profession. 

I am truly a jack of all trades. I operate an organic vegetable farm, build great dwellings, and write, record, and perform my own rock-n-roll music. In addition, I work as a farm laborer in the spring and fall for my father-in-law and brother-in-law’s conventional corn and soybean farming operation.

I received my bachelor’s degree in American Indian Studies with a focus in Ojibwe Language and culture and a minor in Anthropology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

Fun Fact(s):

I married the love of my life, Kristi Link, and we live on a farm with our two children, Gavin and Anika, in the upper Minnesota River Valley.

Brad Fernholz was elected to the CURE Board of Directors in 2015.
