An 80 X 200 ft. warehouse and office were built just west of Carson, IA on Hwy 92 at the end of 2012 and completed March 2013. TFS was developed to provide agronomic service to the area and to help growers be more profitable.
TFS Agronomy, LLC was formed in 2014 and managed by Aaron Sick and Eric Hough. The addition of TFS Agronomy and experience of Aaron Sick helped to grow the vision that began with Total Farm Solutions by providing better service to the growers and increasing profitability.
