About Will

I am currently a full-time production grain farmer. I founded Hired Iron, a website that connects farmers and agricultural service providers. I love all the challenges that agriculture provides. From the basics of fertilizer efficacy to the intricacies of precision equipment and all the customer-supplier relationships involved, agriculture can be a very interesting sector of the economy.
