Windom Man Indicted By Federal Grand Jury For False Organic Grains

Mon 1-23-2023

(Windom)- A Windom man is now the second man indicted by a federal grand jury due to corn and soybeans being sold incorrectly. The charge says that Adam Clifford Olson sold over $46 million of corn and soybeans as organic grains, even though it was not. Olson was a certified organic farmer for at least seven years, between 2014 and 2021.

Organic crops and their designation is highly regulated, especially with how the crops are treated through fertilizers and chemicals.

Online court documents previously showed James Clayton Wolf also having been charged, but now Olson of Olson Seed LLC has been added to that list. The documents show three counts of wire fraud in relation to the case.
