Dean and Kathy Simpson
Directors & Owners/Partners
Dean and Kathy Simpson are principal partners, business advisors and members of the family board that steers all operations of Simpson Farms, Simpson Agri Trucking, Simpson Alloy Services and Simpson Aerospace Services. Their business history started when as a junior in high school, Dean rented 3-acres to farm. When he and Kathy married, they continued their commitment to farming, steadily growing the operation to its present size of 2,600 acres in row crops, and 480 head of cattle. In 1993, Dean created Simpson Alloy Services as a way of diversifying and providing full seasonal income for a growing workforce. Kathy focused on the business operation’s accounting and bookkeeping but was never shy of jumping in a truck or tractor (child in tow) when the farm needed hands. Today, their enterprises involve all the family (3 children and their spouses) and a workforce of 18 and growing. In addition to the farming operations, they also provide custom excavation services, spraying and fertilizer applications for other producers, and represent Pioneer seed. A third company, Simpson Agri Trucking, LLC, operates 7 tractor trailers, hauling grain and other material.
