“What Sand County Foundation brings to the table are trusted relationships with farmers and expertise in implementing innovative conservation demonstrations and municipal-rural partnerships. We look forward to learning from and engaging with Field to Market’s supply chain members,” said Kevin McAleese, Sand County Foundation president and CEO.

As an active member in Field to Market, Sand County Foundation will work together with grower organizations, academia, conservation groups, public sector partners and leading companies to help catalyze opportunities across the agricultural value chain for continuous improvements in environmental outcomes.
