Mike Burton

Mike Burton has more than 20 years of experience in the organic food industry, along with degrees in economics and law. He moved to Roanoke two years ago from an organic farm in Floyd County; his products used to appear on the co-op shelves!  As a founding board member of SustainFloyd and its first Executive Director, Mike dedicated himself to supporting and developing the local, regenerative agriculture in Floyd and the region.  He became a local food system consultant building on his work in the region and now serves as Managing Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), a national non-profit leader in educating the public and change-makers about the dangers of GMOs and associated pesticides.

Mike is committed to clean food and a healthy environment and wants to support the co-op’s mission with his background and passions.
