What got Tim started in Ag?

The people. Tim really enjoys the fact that the people he works with and does business with are honest, hardworking, and considerate. Tim has often said, “Remember, this small group is responsible for feeding the world.” It’s a big responsibility, one that he takes very seriously. Tim wants his customers to know that when they work with him, they can expect integrity, honesty, commitment, value, quality, and as a bonus, his charming personality.


What keeps Tim in the Ag business?

He likes the fact that this is a global industry. However, as you dissect all of the various dynamics, you would be surprised at just how small the industry is. Everyone seems to know each other and share a common bond. It’s big enough to make a difference, yet small enough to care.

As Tim said, this business is helping feed the world.  East River would love to help you be a part of that. If you’re in need of wheat, corn, or soybean seeds, contact us today. The beauty of working with Tim is you’ll not only get a quality product, but you’ll also get a quality experience, doing business with someone you can trust.
