The Agricultural Retailers Association this week presented Asmus Farm Supply of Rake, Iowa with the 2017 Retailer of the Year at the ARA conference and expo in Phoenix.
The operation is lead by second-generation owners Harlan and Amy Asmus, who accepted the award along with their sons Garrett and Holden and daughter-in-law, Billie. Mark Helt, National Sales Manager for Monsanto, and ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock (far right), presented the award.
“Asmus farm supply started in the 1950s by my late father Harvey,” said Harlan. “Our customer relationships go deep-decades and three generations.”
“The family business goes beyond the ownership of the business. Everyone who works for and with Asmus Farm Supply is really part of that family,” said Amy.
AFS has five locations serving farmers in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.
