Following in my dad's footsteps
I've been farming for 15 years. Growing up on a farm, I wanted to follow in my dad's footsteps. I was able to take over the grain operation on the family farm while pursuing more land of my own. In the early years of building my business, I would supplement our income by taking other jobs. Eventually, I secured enough land to farm full time.
A lifestyle I love
We grow corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa on 3,000 acres while raising three kids. I enjoy being my own boss, and the ability to provide for and raise a family in the farming lifestyle has been a huge blessing. Also, I take pride in knowing that we make a significant contribution not only in our own community, but also to communities across the country and globe.
