Amanda and her husband Dustin, farm and raise cattle in Southeast Nebraska with their two children, Bo and Ellie. Amanda’s agriculture roots run deep. She grew up on a family farm, was involved with 4-H and FFA growing up, to now owning her own business and working side by side with her husband.

A Note from Amanda:

It is with immense pleasure and a deep sense of purpose that I take on the role of Coordinator for CommonGround Nebraska. This organization has consistently championed the voice and leadership of women in agriculture. As we embark on this new chapter, I am thrilled to journey with the volunteers in our mission to be advocates for the food we grow. I am excited to empower and unite the incredible women who shape Nebraska’s agricultural landscape.

CommonGround Nebraska stands as a powerful symbol of unity and strength within the agriculture community. The volunteers are dedicated to fostering open and honest conversations about farming, food production and sustainability. While we may come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, we share a common passion for agriculture.

My vision as the new Coordinator of CommonGround Nebraska is to honor the legacy of this organization and the women in agriculture as we propel forward. We will continue to provide a platform for women to connect, learn, share experiences and influence the agricultural narrative. Our organization is committed to empowering farm and ranch women from across this state with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to share their stories.

In the coming months and years, CommonGround Nebraska will launch exciting initiatives and events tailored to the needs of our consumers. Our commitment to open dialogue, fact-based information and respectful conversations will remain unwavering. We recognize the diverse perspectives and encourage a space where all voices are valued. Through these discussions, we will forge a common ground that honors our shared values while embracing our unique experiences.
Join us in this shared mission of empowerment, education, and unity.
