B2 Farms, LLC are commercial grain producers with
agricultural operations in Fairfield/Columbia, NC and Brooklyn, WI.
Our emphasis is corn, wheat and soybean production. This "multi-state" approach
allows us the ability to diversify our operation while reducing risk
and maximizing efficiency.
We also believe that this approach allows us to capitalize
on critical input decisions that might become apparent in one location
but not so in the other. With this approach, we're able to stay well-connected
to the U.S. Cornbelt from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard.
