Triple T Farms History
Triple T Farms was established in 1995 when Jason, Tom, and Wes Thompson rented their mother's 80 acres of dryland and 160 acres of pasture. Over the next 5 years they started renting some neighbors' farms and increased their equipment line. During that time Jason started working full-time for Triple T Farms.
In 2000, they purchased their first farm from a neighbor and continued to expand acres and started to background cattle. In 2002, they purchased their grandparents' farm and Wes started working full-time for Triple T Farms.
More land was acquired in 2009, then in 2010 a half section of land with a 6,000 head feedlot was purchased and the operation headquarters was moved off the home place to the new facility. In 2011, 240 acres next to the feedlot was purchased and more acres were rented.
In 2017, Burwell Feeders, a 10,000 head custom feedlot was purchased to diversify the operation.
