Why I Belong

“In those early years of trying QDM, there were times when I wanted to give up. But I drew ideas and strength from what I was learning from QDMA. Now my neighbors and I have more than 12,000 acres in our QDM Cooperative, I have made some good friends, and I have had enough success that I am running out of wall space.”  —Erik Schnelle, QDMA Member, Michigan
