Recently two home town residents started their careers where their roots have been planted most of their lives. The Farmers Elevator & Exchange Company hired Adam Grove and Kody Karr in the Agronomy Department to serve their hometown. On July 31, the Farmers Elevator & Exchange Company experienced a change of hands. Grove took the agronomy manager position of Gary Carr. Carr retired after working for the elevator for more than 30 years. Grove stated, “I began training for my new position two years ago, Gary’s retirement was no surprise.”
Grove, a resident born and raised in Indian Creek, has been working at the elevator for the last five years. He is a graduate from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture. Grove stated, “I did not grow up on a farm. My dad is a mechanic and my mom worked for the Clearance Cannon Water District,” adding, “I became interested in farming by starting a job with Maher Brothers.”
