“The support from the community was unprecedented for this issue,” said Andrew Jason, Editorial Director for Spotlight. “From North Dakota’s founding, it has been built on a legacy of agriculture and innovation. The work being done in this 40-acres will ensure we are able to feed the growing global population.”

We worked with people and companies from across the state and country to accurately cover how North Dakota is setting itself as a leader in ag tech. We also were excited to mail the magazine to farms across the state of North Dakota and western Minnesota and every business in North Dakota with 2-40 employees. 

We are excited to continue to cover the work that Emerging Prairie and Grand Farm continue to do in our community and beyond. To read all of our coverage on Grand Farm, go to and you can read the digital version of the magazine here.
