Martin Flaming has raised popcorn near Ogallala, Nebraska for more than 25 years. He has been farming all of his life, first with his father, and now with his son – and always with a fierce dedication to quality. Today, the Flamings grow popcorn, sugar beets, and dry edible beans in the largely irrigated South Platte River Valley. He was drawn to Preferred Popcorn because of his confidence in the Company’s leadership and its Christian values. Whenever he can break away from the farm, Martin enjoys spending time with his wife, children and three grandchildren, and volunteering in music and youth ministry at his local church.
