SEED (v): to place; especially in the hope to increase or profit

The seed business is unlike many industries. Few businesses provide annual optimism that perpetuates each spring. By definition, to seed provides hope to increase or profit. Dan Steines has cultivated that optimism by sharing with his clients for decades.

Dan and Big Country Seeds are proud supporters of the entire community of Tiffin including the Clear Creek Amana Football Team and Booster Club. Go Clippers!

Dan Steines has been part of the agricultural industry for nearly 25 years. Graduating from Kirkwood Community College with an associate degree in Agriculture in 1995, Dan began with Gringer Feed & Grain. He learned from industry giant Don Gringer the importance of providing superior customer service with quality products at a fair price. Those principles were instrumental when, in 2002, Dan became a founding partner with Amana Seed. It was during this period that Dan established himself as an expert seedsman. In August of 2007, Big Country Seeds was founded when Amana Seed was dissolved. Working from the tailgate of his truck and a 1,000 square foot garage, Dan ventured off to share his knowledge and optimism with a handful of clients. Guided by the core principles instilled in him, Dan and Big Country Seeds has grown into one of the area's most respected and successful distributors of seed, chemicals, fertilizer and ice melt.

Today, Big Country Seeds, operating from a 100,000 square foot facility and a team of 14 dedicated employees, offers the same superior customer service with quality products at a fair price.
Currently representing industry leaders like Nutech, Middlekoop’s, Partners Brand, Galena Genetics, AgriGold, Alforex, Stine, Sygenta, Barenbrug, and EC Grow. Big Country Seeds is eager to partner with you to increase your yield and ultimately, increase your profit!
