Welcome to the Greenview Farms web page!
Greenview Farms is a corn and soybean farm in eastern Iowa. It was started by Kevin and Lori Green in 1976 when they rented 160 acres. Since then we have maintained continuous growth.
Greenview Farms has successfully responded to new technology, a changing business environment, and uncertain markets. Soil erosion prevention, high soil fertility, consistent weed control, and continuous communications with our business associates is evidence of the long view approach for cash renting at Greenview Farms.
Greenview Farms Current Events
October 16, 2013 We are just over a month into harvest and have it about 70% completed. Typically harvest has a slow
start as we wait for crops to mature. Then there is a period of rapid progress. By the third week of October
there are more delays due to weather, and the last couple weeks are also slowed by lines at our
delivery points. All in all - on schedule.
October 1, 2013 We made good progress with harvest in September. About 25% of the corn acres are harvested
and 12% of the beans.
September 24, 2013 An informational and well-attended Morning Refresher was held. Meanwhile the field crew
had a great day combining corn.
