DYLAN STRIKE

HOMETOWN: BOZEMAN

NOMINATED BY: AMY KELLEY HOITSMA

Dylan Strike owns and operates Strike Farms, a certified organic vegetable, herb and flower farm just outside of Bozeman city limits. 2016 is the farm's third production season and the business has grown significantly each year, providing the Bozeman community with around 90,000 lbs of deliciousness in 2015. The farm's mission is to nourish our community by growing the highest quality organic produce year round, offering educational outreach, providing meaningful employment, stewarding our natural resources, and conserving agricultural land for new farmers. More info on the farm at: www.strikefarms.com or find them on Facebook.

Dylan graduated from Montana State University in 2013 with a degree in Agroecology and managed another local farm for a year before starting his own business. He couldn't have made it where he is today without the support of his amazing family; his mother Jacque, father Doug and sister Mariah and all of his incredible friends. In Bozeman, when he's not farming, Dylan likes to spend his time snowboarding, mountain biking, climbing, backpacking, potlucking and most recently trail running!
