Owning a seed company has been a long-time goal for Gregg Adams.
“I’ve been in the seed business since 2002. Owning a seed company that is specifically geared to serving the customers in our territory, has always been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” Adams said. “By being directly involved in the industry for more than 15 years, I have had the opportunity to see and learn things that can truly bring value to farmers.”
Adams also still is actively involved in his family farm that is located near Celina, Ohio. The operation grows corn and beans and includes a 4,000 head pig nursery and a 7,500 head hog finishing operation.
“I grew up on a livestock and grain farm, so I’ve been farming for many years,” he said. “I know the specific needs associated with our areas, so I feel that gives us an advantage as far as selecting the products we need for our customers.”
Adams said he and his partner, Matt Bixler, want to grow a company that is simple and easy to work with – one that can respond quickly to customer needs or concerns.
“We want our entire customer base to have the opportunity to have direct contact with us so that we are directly connected to the farms,” he said. “Customers will not be just numbers in our system. They will have true value.”
Adams and his wife Dawn have four children – Alyssa, Nicklaus, Grant and Makenna. All are active in sports, school activities, church groups and 4-H.
