Lauren Krizansky is an agricultural journeywoman.

Today, she farms in southern Colorado on Rockey Farms where she manages several irrigated acres. She grows a market garden, raises cover crops and grazes goats from a local dairy.

Lauren also works in the farm’s potato tissue culture lab and seed potato greenhouse while organizing its field days and farm tours.

In addition, she manages several local agricultural websites and dedicates much time to Colorado Quinoa LLC, the San Luis Valley’s emerging quinoa production and processing company.

Lauren is an award-winning journalist who completed her studies in agroecology and international agriculture at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences before managing a holistic farm in southern Spain, consulting across the Mediterranean and working with water in the San Luis Valley as a writer and an irrigator.

She believes soil health is the foundation of an efficient and fit food and farm system.
