Martie’s Farm Services is a family-owned, locally sourced seed vendor. Martie’s Farm Services started out in Elk River but has since expanded. They now have three local Minnesota locations that they operate out of: Elk River, St. Francis, and Monticello, MN. They create all of their own seed using locally sourced corn and grain. This helps the local farmers in the area stay in business and creates a high-quality product. You can trust the product that Martie’s creates thanks to 37 years of production.
Mr. Martie started the company in 1982, as he was working at a local Johnson's department store in Elk River. The company is now owned by Russ's son Rusty. Mr. Martie wasn’t a farmer by trade but the local feed mill in town was empty so he and a friend decided to buy it and open the mill up again. It wasn’t easy in that time of recession, but they applied for a loan and used it to fund their endeavor, hoping that this idea would pay off. Now 37 years later, his son Rusty runs the business, which is thriving better than ever.
Despite living in a time where local businesses are up against bigger corporations, Martie’s Farm Services continues to thrive and bring in customers. In fact, this has been the busiest year they have ever had, according to Rusty. He says their success is based on a loyal customer base and his hard-working and friendly staff. The atmosphere of Martie’s is one filled with good humor and high-quality knowledge of the products they make and sell.
