Meet the Savings Incentive Program Class of 2019

Heath Hoppes has been raising row crops and broiler chickens for the last two years in the Loess Hills near Council Bluffs, Iowa.
His wife, Katie, two sons and other family and neighbors also help with the operation from time to time. Heath’s vision is to create a diversified organic grain and livestock operation serving the communities of Council Bluffs and Omaha with high-quality, direct-marketed meat.
Heath is excited to connect with a mentor by participating in the Savings Incentive Program. By the end of the program, he hopes to have gained additional knowledge and to have a workable business plan.
