Heitz Family Farm is located just North of Wapakoneta Ohio. We began our operation in 1985 with raising livestock. In 1992 we expanded and added row crops to the operations. Today we have expanded to 3,000 acres of corn, soybeans and Black Angus Beef. Lisa and I have taken an open-minded approach to bring change and opportunity for the future. We continue to be educated on new technology, leadership, management, and other aspects to help us be good stewards of the land.
