The Team

Steve Christensen & his wife

Steve Christensen

Steve graduated from Riceville Community School in 1972, graduated from Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar in 1974 with a degree in Ag Business, and then returned to begin farming with his father on the home farm where the warehouse sits today.  Steve is still actively involved on the farm and has begun to take a more advisory role in the seed business in the last couple of years. This gives him more free time with his 7 grandkids and to spend time doing the things he enjoys around the farm.
