About the Author
Brent Searle grew up on his parent’s family farm near Shelley, Idaho. With that unique experience — only 1 percent of the US population now makes their living on farms — Brent proceeded to earn Bachelor degrees in Agriculture Economics and International Relations, with a minor in Japanese and an emphasis in nutrition from Brigham Young University. Later, he added a Graduate Certificate in Public Administration from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon.
Brent worked for a U.S. Congressman in Washington, D.C. for four years covering agriculture and natural resource issues. Then he worked for the Oregon Department of Agriculture for nearly 22 years in agriculture policy and economics work.
The author is passionate about agriculture, gardening, family, music (trumpet instrumental in particular), his faith, and helping others.
