The Future Proof Farm
Steve Groff, SteveGroff.com
Growing up, Steve Groff wanted nothing more than to be a farmer like his father and grandfather, so after graduating high school he eagerly joined the family business. Over the next 25 years, he took on more and more responsibility and Cedar Meadow Farm was born. What started in 1935 as predominantly a hay, oats, and clover farm has transitioned to a larger, more diversified farming operation as well as a successful cover crop business. Today Groff farms 305 acres of cash grain crops, pumpkins, winter squash, and heirloom tomatoes in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His Cedar Meadow Farm has conducted cover crop research trials, out of which he developed the Tillage Radish. He recently launched Hemp Innovators—a subscription-based network of farmers who can participate in Steve’s live webinars, and ask and answer hemp-related questions.
