Morgan E. Hartman

A generation removed from the diversified dairy farm his dad grew up on in Big Flats, NY and the crop farm where his mom grew up in Batavia, IL, Morgan took a winding route to end up with a degree in Plant Science from Cornell University at the age of 32. Along the way he spent nearly five years in the US Army, studied writing, and worked in various construction jobs.

Flashing forward several years, Morgan founded Black Queen Angus Farm, a 100-percent, grass-fed, registered Angus operation. In 2014 he received the Grassfed Exchange Conference’s Innovative Grassfed Producer Award in Columbia, MO for his development of a regional-branded grassfed beef program, his land stewardship through adaptive grazing and his development of the Winter Greenup Grazing Conference. In 2017, Morgan co-hosted the Grassfed Exchange in Albany, NY. He has had numerous articles published in Country Folks,, Stockman Grassfarmer, and Graze publications.
