The Barnes Farming Way

The Barnes Farming Way


The Barnes Farming Way has been around for decades.  Originally begun by Carson and Maxine Barnes, and now continuing on with John Barnes, it is not just about how we manage our organization, but also about our relationships with others and the beliefs and standards that drive us.


It begins with our vision and our values and also encompasses how we learn, develop and grow as individuals, a team and as an organization. This affects us now, as well as who we become over the next several years.  It causes us to choose who to hire and who to promote.  It determines the choices we make regarding our products and interactions with customers, suppliers and regulators.  


While the behaviors may look different depending on whether we are in the field or in the office, The Barnes Farming Way is a consistent approach to a changing world.


Below is a summary of how our organization views, teaches and reinforces The Barnes Farming Way:


•Act with integrity

•Maintain company information internally for confidentiality

•Teamwork and Communication: help others get the job done the right way

•Mentor others: Share skills and knowledge to help develop others
