Joe came to Capitaline from Pheasants Forever’s national headquarters where he was a Director on their Development team. Pheasants Forever and Capitaline share many of the same believes for farmland: farm the best and conserve the rest. Joe grew up in Rockford, Illinois where he learned his love for nature, outdoor recreation and rural America. Joe’s family owned and leased farm land throughout Northern and Central Illinois, where they found a balance for producing revenue and ensuring a place for clean water and habitat for wildlife. This passion has stayed alive with their current family farm in the driftless region of Wisconsin where Joe spends many days of the year working on wildlife habitat and partnering with their farmer on implementing sound practices for revenue generation and wildlife.
Joe and his wife, Delaney, live in Plymouth, MN with their son, Jackson, and bird dog, Shay.
