Jon Guentzel

Jon has been officially farming since 2004, but has been actively involved since he was old enough to drive machinery. After dad retrofitted an 8″ block on the clutch of this tractor, he was ready to go (mom wasn’t real happy with dad about her 10 year old running that machine!!!). Jon has been farming ever since. He continued to farm full-time during college to grow his operation and provide labor, management and custom application for his father’s operation.
