Andrew Johnmeyer is a farmer in Zumbrota, Minnesota. He has a B.F.A. in graphic design and photography from the University of Missouri, Columbia. It was in Missouri where he first became involved in cannabis law reform, most notably in the 2011 ballot initiative campaign to “Tax and Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol.”
In 2012, Andrew moved to Minnesota to found Green Machine Farm, a direct-market farm where he handles all sales, marketing, design, social media and web content, in addition to all the duties of a livestock operation. He is a member of the Land Stewardship Project, Minnesota Farmers Market Association, and the Saint Paul farmers market association.
As a farmer, Andrew has taken the lead in tracking the implementation of Minnesota’s industrial hemp pilot program. He also tracks the medical cannabis program, particularly the inclusion of intractable pain patients.
