Ryan Hoff is a fourth-generation farmer in Luverne, where he lives with his wife, Alyssa, and their two kids, Dawson and Lydia.
Hoff farms with his father, Roger, and brother, Jeremy. The Hoffs grow corn and soybeans and raise hogs on their family farm.
Hoff also works at R&S Sales, LLC for his father-in-law, Brett Stegenga, selling seed and precision planting equipment with his brother-in-law, Blake.
“I’ve always wanted to farm ever since I was young,” Hoff said, “and then I had a passion for the seed industry, so I found a way to do both for a living.”
He got into farming and selling seed full-time after graduating with an agronomy degree from South Dakota State University. Hoff joined the Rock County Corn and Soybean Growers board about five years ago and has continued to stay active at the grassroots level through his members with the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association.
“The reason I stay involved in the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association and at the county level is because I like doing the activities that we put on in the county and in the area,” Hoff said. “It’s nice to help out around the area and to support corn and soybean growers’ initiative.”
