Starting out with a no cab 27 Massey and a 1949 Chevy truck progressing to a four 9770 John Deere Custom-harvesting operation. Our customers rely on us year after year due to honest hard work, devotion, work ethics, dependability and delight in our work.

Brandon Friesen and wife, Kasey, currently have no children.
If you are looking for a chance to have a one of its kind summer or fall this might be the opportunity for you. We leave for Oklahoma in the middle to end of May to harvest wheat. From there we travel north to Meade, KS (home), northern Kansas, Colorado and into Montana. Then we return to Meade, KS where we run cattle and do farm work during August. In September we start harvesting corn and milo (sorghum) in Meade, KS and than onto St. Francis, KS for corn, milo and sunflowers until the beginning of November. This job is an opportunity like no other to meet new people, places, and experience new things all while helping "Harvest the Grain that Feeds The World."
