DOUG BRUNNER

AGC Founder

The Ag Center is deeper than a piece of property-its concept was built long before its structure took shape on Highway 59. 

Growing up as a dairyman, I knew very little about farming. My curiosity led me to learn more and essentially started my first company, DCB Farming. Little did I know farming was to lay the foundation of my future and the cornerstone of what has become The Ag Center. 
 

Starting my own business was not easy. It took leaning on my family values, a lot of resources and trial and error (to say the least). I was fortunate to be raised with a history of family experience in the agricultural industry and attribute my early successes to the strong mentors in my life: my father who taught me the values of hard work; a grandfather who was a pioneer of his time and my father in-law, who is exceptionally creative and has a futuristic mindset that built an empire. The start-up experience of DCB Farming shifted my whole perspective on how to do business and who to grow businesses with.
 

Within two years, I started another business that coincided with my other companies and created a synergism. In creating and sustaining these incredible partnerships-combined with God’s will-we were able to grow exponentially into the Ag Center-bringing together partners and affiliates who are able to streamline each other’s work. We all have the same mission, that of one to create a fun and hardworking atmosphere. We support people to be successful in their craft. One of the greatest fulfillments in creating the Ag Center is watching the incredible people around me become so successful at what they do. It brings me great joy.

I credit success of business to God, family, employees and hard work. Without having those in alignment, success is very hard to come by. We often forget who helped us get where we are, (trust me, I find myself doing that all too often). I feel lucky to be where I am today, married to an incredible wife and have an amazing family. I’m surrounded by wonderful people that I work with daily. 

Our goal at the Ag Center is to help this community and anyone else that we are fortunate enough to work with grow and progress. We are committed to help attain YOUR goals and to be a tool for your needs. I am so grateful for our agricultural community.
 

Sincerely, 

Doug Brunner
