Mother Earth Farms Mike

Mike Malicky

Managing Partner

Mike is a former corporate executive who needed a switch from the internal workings of Fortune 500 companies. Originally from Kansas and trained with a B.A., M.B.A. and other organizational work, Mike prefers to dive back into his roots of agriculture as well as entrepreneurship.

Mike enjoys working in the fields as much as he can while also attending to the needs of the business in other ways. With three divisions (shavings, hay, vegetables) he has his hands full but he views working with customers, suppliers and vendors in the organic agricultural space as some of the best people he has ever associated with.

Having owned and operated several other companies, that he either bought out of bankruptcy or as an ongoing entity, he understands how to treat people and that they are the most important asset of any operation.
