This past October, Wild Valley farms founder, Albert Wilde traveled to Washington D.C. as a finalist in The Farm Bureau Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge. Wild Valley Farms and wool pellets were honored as one of the top 4 finalists out of 470 applicants nationwide. Wild Valley Farms, along with the other finalists were awarded a start up fund of $15,000 each and will advance to the next phase of the challenge to compete for $25,000 at the 2018 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention in Nashville.
Jennifer Vesper of Morgan County News conducted an in depth interview with Albert going over the process, objectives and the next steps in the national competition.
With the introduction of wool pellets onto the gardening scene last year, Wild Valley Farms has the gardening and flower world all a buzz and have placed themselves firmly into the marketplace.
