Chief Communications Officer, The Land Institute

Tammy Kimbler

Tammy Kimbler serves as the chief communications officer of The Land Institute, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization developing perennial, diverse, regenerative grain crops and agriculture. A California native from a long line of farmers and ranchers, Kimbler spent her early career in Hollywood as a primetime television brand manager. She moved to Minnesota in 2001 to work with the state’s Fortune 100 companies in advertising and marketing. Before joining The Land Institute, Kimbler worked at General Mills as a senior marketing communications planner for mission, helping brands nourish communities and regenerate agriculture. She also served as an assistant marketing communications manager for Cascadian Farm Organic, launching the first breakfast cereal made with Kernza® perennial grain and raising awareness of the positive impact of climate-smart ingredients.

Kimbler reconnected with her agricultural roots in Minnesota through the burgeoning Midwest food movement focused on sustainable agriculture and local food systems. When she’s not standing in a perennial grain field or drinking a Kernza® beer, Kimbler spends her time tending her flock of backyard chickens and a plot in a history community victory garden in Minneapolis. She eats well and feeds others as often as possible.
