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.
Today, the family business is a progressive, multi-dimensional business offering not only harvesting solutions, but also custom seeding. The operation offers state-of-the-art harvesting solutions such as five 4WD John Deere Combines, Kinze Grain Carts with scales, and several Kenworth Semis for hauling. We also raise Black Angus cattle and farm our own land. Our expertise in both harvesting and farming has proven to be valuable to our customers because we directly understand their concerns and needs.
A Team Endeavor
In 2002, Leon Bulgin joined Hoffman Harvesting and then the family in 2006 when he married Perry and Candice’s daughter, Jada. In 2009, Leon and Jada began the process of taking over management of the business while Perry coped with the idea of not being on an entire harvest run for the first time ever. After this trial period, Perry and Candice slowly faded into their more semi-retired positions in the family operation, but have and will always assist as needed and play an integral role in the management of the business.
