Keith Kunde

Dirt Farmer & Company came about accidently. Keith Kunde, President of Dirt Farmer, had managed his family vineyard for 25 years. In 2005, he stepped away from the family business to manage his own vineyards and, with the encouragement of our employees, began managing for others.

In today’s economy, many property owners and vineyard management companies are not putting nutrients back into the vine and vineyard which causes nutrient depletion in the vineyard. At Dirt Farmer, we believe in the science behind leaf tissue and soil testing, giving us a window into the needs of the vineyard. A balanced vineyard will produce the most uniform quality fruit possible.

While the backbone of Dirt Farmer is vineyard management, the company has grown to include vineyard development, orchard management, landscape design/management, equestrian facility construction, pomace removal and composting.

No project is too large or too small.
