Our Company

Managing Partner Josh, co-founder/partner/wife Paula, Casey, Hunter, Madison

Our roots run deep in the Kenaston area with farming going back 4 generations.  With the family out of the farming industry for over 2 decades Josh and Paula started Kerpan Farms from humble beginnings in 2009.  With great blessings and a lot of help from a lot of great people the farm has quickly grown to over 10,000 acres.

Operating Principles
  • Operate as a world class agricultural enterprise and strive for excellence in all aspects of our operation

  • Create a positive work-life balance for all team members.  You can't run a sustainable business on unsustainable effort.

  • A focus on safety as the number 1 priority in all aspects of our work.

  • Identify the maximum potential for each piece of land and implement a plan to realize that potential. "Take care of the land and it will take care of you."

  • Foster and encourage communication so that we can continue to improve our operations at all levels.


To produce healthy and nutritious food for the world in a sustainable manner focusing on three areas of sustainability.

  1. Human work-life balance: we will foster an environment where team members can thrive and enjoy their work experience as well as their lives off the farm.

  2. Environment: we will operate using practices that allow each piece of land to reach its unique potential.  By combining technology, animal impact, and plant diversity we aim to increase organic matter and long term viability of the land.

  3. Economic: we will operate with long term profitability as a key focus.  We cannot improve the land, our community or our family and team member's lives without being profitable.


To have an ethical and sustainable enterprise that will produce opportunities for future generations to experience the agricultural industry.

To better understand the land and what make it work.  We will adopt the technology and have the operational flexibility to implement the practices necessary to improve the land to it's maximum long term potential ensuring long term environmental sustainability and economic viability.
