Doug and his wife Anna own and operate Vilicus Farms, a 5,000-acre certified organic dry-land farm growing 12 to 15 grain, pulse, broadleaf and oilseed crops annually. Having started the farm “from scratch,” they share a passion for beginning farmers. Doug has been an active member of the Farmers Advisory Council and regular participant in OTA’s Policy Conference and Hill Visits. Prior to launching the farm, Doug managed the State of Montana’s Organic Certification Program. Doug has worked as an organic inspector, agricultural researcher and farm manager.
