Tate Farms was established in 1978 by Hal and Nancee Tate. The farm consisted of 150 acres of cropland, hogs, and a few beef cattle. After the first few years went by, the hogs went bye as well. This allowed the farm to concentrate on crop farming and custom farming. Their sons, Bruce and Russ, joined the farm at an early age. Over the years Tate Farms has continued to grow using new technology, and better farming practices, to increase efficiency and productivity. We treat our employees like family. And feel they are a huge part of what we have accomplished. Currently we raise corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay. We also have 110 head of mostly registered Red Angus beef cattle. We sell breeding stock, bulls, and feeder calves. Custom farming is still an important part of our business. We take pride in doing an efficient and quality job for our long time customers. Farming has drastically changed since 1978. Modernization has make things safer for operators of equipment, and the environment. Even with all the changes, hard work, dedication, and a passion for agriculture, still remain priorities at Tate Farms.
