How I got started in agriculture

(Jeremy) I always knew I wanted to become a farmer. I went to college for a year, got away from the farm and realized the city just wasn’t for me. Dad had retired and I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to be able to come back and start farming. Luckily, he was able to help me get started, pick up farm ground and build a hog barn.

Our business approach

(Jeremy) I try to be as conservative as I can be in today’s environment. We have to continue to grow, but do so within our means. Even though things are financially tight with the ag economy right now, we are always looking at ways to improve our operation. I feel like FCSAmerica is there to support us. They want to help us, and they want us to succeed.

Why we work with FCSAmerica

(Angie) Our financial officer is about our age and has his own young family. He understands our situation and our operation. It’s a huge benefit to work with someone who knows us so well. He’s our friend and business partner.

Our greatest future challenge

(Jeremy) I think the biggest challenge in growing a farm operation today is that market prices and expenses are such huge factors. I feel like being diversified in our farming operation will be huge in the future. If corn and soybeans aren’t making us money, hopefully the cow-calf herd will be.

What we enjoy most about farming

(Angie) It’s priceless to watch our boys mimic every step Jeremy takes out on the farm. They want to do exactly what he does. I just sit back and think, “Wow, this is our family!” Growing up in town, I never would have dreamed I would live on a farm, but it is working out just fine.
