Co-Founder, Owner and Operator @ Vertical Malt

Adam Wagner has been Co-Founder, Owner and Operator of Vertical Malt since 2014. Vertical Malt grows barley and other cereal grains, malts these raw grains, and sells the malted products to brewers, distillers, and bakers throughout the Upper Midwest.  A Red River Valley native, Adam grew up on his family’s farm outside the small town of Fisher Minnesota.  After spending fifteen years in traditional corporate environments, he came back to his roots in agriculture starting Vertical Malt as a value-add business to compliment the family farm.  He is passionate about cultivating a thriving rural America and an advocate for improving access and infrastructure for small towns and communities.
