Meet Jenny Burgess. She and her husband Geoff are a first-generation farm family farming near Sterling, KS. Geoff emigrated from England to pursue better opportunities in the United States. Together, the couple co-own and operate their central Kansas farm, where they grow corn, soybeans, wheat, sorghum and cover crops.
When she takes a break from working around the farm, Jenny enjoys baking, cooking, writing and blogging, photography and fitness activities.
Jenny joined the CommonGround™ Kansas team in fall 2016. She is passionate about transparency and telling the story of how her family grows food responsibly on their farm.
