- Land Stewardship
"I wanted to take a moment to thank Tom Farms for the very informative session today. I am always impressed by the dedication to be better stewards of our resources and the concern for other places less capable than we are in the US. On a practical side, thank you for lunch and the Tom Farms hat! I'll enjoy wearing it for sure."
Roger and Linda Carroll
"This is just our second year with Tom Farms cash renting our land but we have been thoroughly pleased with how they have farmed the land, treated us with respect and take time to talk with us any time they are here. The rent is always paid on time, correct and handled professionally. The waterways and roadsides are kept mowed and the weeds are kept sprayed around the edge of the fields. It is also easy to contact someone from Tom Farms if we ever have any questions. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone."
2012 AgriVision Award Recipient
The AgriVision Award, now in its sixth year, is given to a Hoosier who has demonstrated exemplary leadership to maximize the potential of Indiana agriculture. Lt. Governor Becky Skillman presented the 2012 AgriVision Award to Kip Tom, Managing Member of Tom Farms in Kosciusko County, at the Celebration of Agriculture event in the Normandy Barn at the Indiana State Fair. “Kip’s vision and innovative spirit are what the AgriVision Award represents,” Skillman said. “He has led the growth of Tom Farms, taking the family business from its very conservative and traditional beginnings beginning in 1950 to an early adapter of more aggressive business principles and technologies in the industry today. Because of Kip’s vision, his family business is the leader in seed corn production and provides services globally to Monsanto and DuPont.”
