Addie Yoder, Class of 2019, and her husband Joshlin have been selected as the recipients of the 2020 Missouri Leopold Conservation Award®. The award, named for renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, recognizes farmers, ranchers and foresters who inspire others with their dedication to land, water and wildlife habitat management on private land.

Addie and Joshlin are advocates for modern agriculture. Together they communicate the results and benefits of their sustainability practices to legislators and consumers and members of our Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge classes. Addie shares their farm story through her social media and podcast, “Grace and Growth with Addie” and public speaking events. As a US Farmers & Ranchers in Action ambassador and CommonGround volunteer, Addie has open conversations with non-farm women to bridge the communication gap on food issues and modern farming practices.
