Mathieu Choiniere, 18 - Highgate, Vermont

Mathieu grew up on his family’s 80 cow dairy that also raises pork, chicken and laying hens in Highgate, Vermont. A neat aspect of the Choiniere Family Farm is that they are fortunate enough to host weekly farm tours in the summer months through a local resort called The Tyler Place. Mathieu has recently been elected to Organic Valley’s Generation Organic Executive Committee as a representative for the Eastern Region and he also received a $10,000 sustainable agriculture scholarship from Annie’s Homegrown. He believes he can really improve upon the farming system, as well as educate others about the benefits of farming organically. Mathieu says, “I’m eager to participate in the Gen-O 2013 Teach-In because I think the first step towards a healthier future for our society is to ensure people have the information they need to make educated decisions about what they eat and this is most critical for young children.”
