Hello! My name is Joe Ramstad and I am a student here at the University of Minnesota studying Agricultural Education and Agricultural Communication and Marketing with minors in Animal Science and Applied Economics. I grew up just north of the Twin Cities in the town of Forest Lake, Minnesota and am an only child. Although I do not come from a farm, I took my first ever agriculture course as a high school freshman, and ever since, I have had a passion for agriculture and sharing the story of agriculture with others. I joined FarmHouse because the guys in the house are people I look up to and are genuine, hard working leaders with similar values. In addition to FarmHouse, I am involved in activities such as Agricultural Education Club, Gopher Dairy Club, the CFANS Mentor Program and the CFANS Research Apprenticeship Program. Outside of participating in campus activities and hitting the books, I have strong interest in learning about my faith, spending a lot of time outdoors, watching Gopher Football, winning things on the radio, and learning how to effectively utilize social media to share the story of agriculture with others.words.
