Why I chose agriculture

I grew up around it. Even after college, I knew it was what I wanted to do. The history of our family was also an influence; 5 generations have lived on this farm now.

Our business approach

Over the years, we had to be innovative to figure out what would work. If it worked, we stuck with it, if not; we kept trying until we got it right. Also, diversification has been a key to success.

What I enjoy about farming

I love the independence of being my own boss, and watching our fields grow and change with the seasons.

Why we work with FCSAmerica

It is nice to have a line of credit versus a set loan with a stringent structure. Their people have a good knowledge of the ag business and have been supportive of new ventures we have started. The cash-back dividends are a real benefit.
