ABOUT FARMERS SERVING FARMERS

Since 1995 we've been farming, hands in the dirt just like you

FARMING IS OUR PASSION

We farm about 700 acres filled mostly with grain, and a bit of hay to feed our Shorthorn show cattle. We carry the same seed we plant, and the same equipment we use because it's the best we've found.

WE ARE PROUD OF OUR FARM

But our passion for working the soil doesn’t end there. We want to see farmers and their farms flourish, which is why we started Buckeye Farmers in the first place. When it’s time to harvest, you’ll find us in the field – ours if we can, and others if there’s a problem we can help solve.

WHEN YOU NEED SOMETHING WE’LL BE THERE

That’s why we don’t consider ourselves a 9-5 business – farmers are never going to work banker’s hours. We’re out when you’re out. When you need something done, we’ll be there, whether that’s late at night, or in the middle of harvest. We put our customers first, before our farm, before our cattle, before even a good night’s sleep, because we know when you need something, you need it yesterday, and unreliable help is no help at all.

WE DO THIS BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN YOU, THE FARMER

If we can make your job easier, we’ll be there, whether that means helping you find the best Agrigold seed to plant, or running a piece of Poettinger equipment out to your farm to keep you running strong.
