Since 1969, Schwartz Farms has been an independent Pioneer sales representative predominately through its sale of corn, soybean and alfalfa seeds.  Originally started by Tom Schwartz Sr., the Pioneer seed dealership was taken over by Dan in 1984.  Today, there are a number of individuals who work towards ensuring the Schwartz Farms agency meets the needs of its long-lasting clientele.

While Dan is the General Manager of the Schwartz Farms dealership in Trumbull county, he is supported by Chad Thompson at Heritage Hill Farms and Todd Barnett at Caroma Ranch in northeast and northwest Trumbull county, respectively.  Schwartz Farm’s Jess King, John King and Bill Helmuth ensure that the administrative and logistical end of the dealership is upheld.  Additionally, Jess King is the Dairy Specialist in the northeast Ohio region, therefore has her own clientele base, as well.
