Dylan Bruce has organic veggies in his bones: born and raised in southwest Wisconsin on an organic CSA farm. Dylan left the farm for Chicago and then Los Angeles, working his way through the food system. After graduating, Dylan was drawn back to Wisconsin by promises of good food, tangible seasons, friendly neighbors, and plentiful cheese. Since moving back Dylan has worked at the UW-Madison Organic and Sustainable Research and Extension lab managing vegetable trials. Finally, his heart called him back to the home farm, and with the help of good friends, Circadian Organics was born. Through his management experience in one of the largest national vegetable variety trialling programs, and commercial vegetable and seed production, Dylan has witnessed firsthand the need for an accessible and intuitive tool for varietal choice – he is excited to be a part of the SeedLinked team to bring that solution to fruition.
