Dennis Mackey, 59, has been an organic grower since the late 1980s and has done extensive work on “mineralizing” the soil and crops he grows to maximize nutrition benefits. Mackey has a BS degree from Western Michigan University, 1971. His professional background includes managing Lakeview Orchards Inc., a 1,000-acre fruit growing and packing operation based in northern Michigan in the 1980s. From 1990 to 2000 he managed two organic orchards and farm markets north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While in Wisconsin, Mackey started a fresh pressed organic apple juice operation (1994), establishing markets in Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee and Minneapolis.
