Mark Kastel

Mark Kastel has spent most of his professional life advocating for family farmers and working to ensure the integrity of organics. In 2004, he co-founded The Cornucopia Institute and built a reputation as one of the most recognizable and effective organic industry watchdogs. Mr. Kastel lives on a 160-acre organically managed farm in the rugged hills of southwestern Wisconsin, near the tiny burg of Rockton, where, as director of Beyond Pesticides’ OrganicEye project, he continues to advocate for economic justice for family farmers and to preserve the foundational precepts of organic farming.
