Gail’s life journey has taken him on a path from a 3200-acre conventional corn/ soybean farm to a 162-acre food farm that grows multiple species of livestock and literally dozens of different grains, fruit, nut, and vegetable crops (regenerative). Along the way, he has learned the value of healthy ecosystems to both his farming operation as well as his own health. Fuller puts

emphasis on principles, not practices and thinks farming should be about (re)growing

communities. Fuller believes we need to be growing our food in systems designed to live thrive according to nature's principles.

 

Gail has spoken at conferences and workshops all over the country and in 2012, along with help from Jill Clapperton, started the Fuller Field School. It has quickly become recognized as one of the premier advanced educational events in the US with speakers and attendees coming from all over the globe. 

 

Gail is planning on adding more educational events on his new farm and is passionate about educating consumers as well. He believes the only way to change food

production in the US is from the bottom up. We can’t sit around and wait for the government to fix our broken food system, to heal our broken farmers, or to guide consumers on proper diets. We have to do this ourselves, one consumer at a time and one farm at a time.
