Tyler Garrett is the Director of Government Relations for Rocky Mountain Farmers Union. Tyler developed a love and appreciation for agriculture at a young age when spending time with his grandparents on their small farm in Oklahoma. His appreciation for agriculture grew through his time working on his aunt and uncle’s cattle and poultry farm from elementary school through college. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a master’s degree in Public Administration and Nonprofit Studies from the University of Arkansas. He also has a master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Colorado Boulder. With a deep understanding of public policy and our political systems at all levels, Tyler is excited to advance the policy initiatives of family farmers, ranchers, and rural communities in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming and to represent Rocky Mountain Farmers Union when working with elected officials and bureaucrats at the local, state, and national levels.
