Driftless Organics CSA Farm
Noah Engel
Josh Engel was born and raised in rural Soldiers Grove, on his parents’ organic dairy farm. He started growing potatoes when he was 11 years old and hasn’t looked back since. Josh is the brain child of Driftless Organics’ famous sunflower oil and has been instrumental in bringing biodiversity to the farm in the form of small grains, biofuels and other edible-oil crops like pumpkin seed and canola.
Like Josh, Noah was also raised on one of the area’s first organic farms. Since he was old enough to walk, Noah has been working with (and playing with) tractors. To this day, tinkering in the shop is his first and foremost passion. From cultivation equipment to our harvest machines, Noah is the one building, fixing and managing it all. Noah is also in charge of the farm’s many “systems”, including our vast network of irrigation lines and our vegetable washing and pack lines. In addition to all of this, Noah’s in charge of all of the weed control AND nutrient management on the farm. I’m sure there’s about a thousand other things that Noah takes care of at Driftless and as you can see, he’s a busy guy!
