Lane Grieser farms 400 acres in northern Montcalm County alongside his parents and wife Holly. They market hay to equine operations, and raise corn and oats to feed their small brood cow herd, fattening the steers for freezer beef. There’s also a flock of 50 ewes that lamb in December and January for the Easter market.
Grieser’s Farm Bureau involvement began early, joining the Montcalm County Farm Bureau board as Young Farmer chair in his early 20s. That was followed by stints on the executive committee as third member and vice president. He’s also had a hand in candidate evaluation work.
Lane and Holly ride, breed and sell Foundation Quarter Horses and in recent years have opened their home to several foster children.
