"When we decided to be a full-time grain farm, I spent many hours ripping out the fences that I helped put in when I was younger."

Timo and his family moved to Pinewood, Ontario (west of Thunder Bay) from Germany when he was a few months old, and his dad began managing a farm for a local family in the community. The Schmutz family, who owned the farm at the time, were having a tough time growing crops, and in 1991 they decided to become a beef farm. As the beef farm grew, Timo’s family began slowly purchasing the farm and crop land, growing their own crops. Timo and his sister grew up helping out with field work, feeding cattle and pasture management.
