Tom and Irene Frantzen

Tom and Irene Frantzen are lifetime members of Practical Farmers of Iowa and have been conducting on-farm research since 1988. They operate an organic crop and livestock farm near New Hampton. The Frantzens have conducted trials to reduce inputs, increase crop yields and feed pigs alternative rations. Tom is currently researching pelleting small grains and feeding hybrid rye instead of corn.
