About Us

The Beginning

 Born into the harvesting world, Perry Hoffman learned the specifics of the custom harvesting industry as he grew up helping his father with his harvesting business. At the age of 17, Perry decided to branch off and start his own harvesting business. In the beginning, the business had two 6600 John Deere combines, two trucks and a 1½ ton truck that was used as a service trailer. In 1974, Candice joined Perry’s hand in marriage and the business. Since then she has been in charge of cooking, billing and office management of the business.

Present Day

 Today, the family business is a progressive, multi-dimensional business offering not only harvesting solutions, but also custom seeding and spraying services. The operation offers state-of-the-art harvesting solutions such as four 4WD John Deere Combines, Kinze Grain Carts with scales, and several Kenworth Semis for hauling. The business specializes in harvesting barley, beans, canola, corn, flax, milo, oats, sunflowers, and wheat.

 Perry and Candice also raise Black Angus cattle and farm their own land. Perry’s expertise in both harvesting and farming has proven to be valuable to his customers because he directly understands their needs.

A team endeavor

 In 2002, Leon Bulgin a native of South Africa joined Hoffman Harvesting and found out how much he loved harvest. Instead of going home he stayed and learned the ropes of the business.  He found another love in 2006 when he married, Jada, Perry and Candice’s daughter. Since then the team of four has been working together. In 2010, Leon and Jada began the process of taking over management of the business. This was the first summer Perry had not been on the entire harvest run. While Perry and Candice are considered semi-retired from the family operation, they will always assist the harvesting business as needed and play an integral role in the management of the business.

 The family operation continues to be operated by Leon and Jada who are devoted to providing farmers, throughout the Midwest, quality services the company has strived to do since 1972.
