Why we chose agriculture

We’ve never considered a career in anything else. Farming is what we’ve always hoped to do.

Our greatest challenge

Weather – we seem to either have too much water or not enough.

How we prepared myself for agricultural business

We both studied agriculture at Iowa State University and worked in ag sales after college.

How we know we’re heading in the right direction

We have an annual meeting with our financial officer. The numbers don’t lie. They tell us how good our decisions were that year.

The future of our operation

We plan to expand wisely and profitably to accommodate the next generation.

What we enjoy about farming

We love having our families involved in the farm. We have two generations actively farming together and the third getting started.

Why we work with FCSAmerica

Quite simply, they understand agriculture and want us to succeed. Our financial officer went above and beyond to help us expand and start farming full-time.
