Greenfield Nitrogen was created by a team of experts with a proven track record for building and growing agricultural businesses. It all started in 2011 when our founder, Karl Theis, paid $835 per ton retail of anhydrous ammonia and knew there had to be a better way.

In order to take Greenfield Nitrogen from a dream to reality, we listened to you.  We met with hundreds of farmers and more than 50 agricultural retailers. You told us that in today’s competitive landscape, you want a predictable way to reduce your nitrogen costs.

Our Team

We are passionate about agriculture and driven to help keep the margins at home. The dedicated, hard-working farmers and agricultural retailers we’ve met over the years inspire us every day.

Local farmers, businesses, and individuals have already invested in a seed capital round that totalled $4.7 million. Many gave us their wisdom, knowledge, and expertise in addition to investing. We couldn’t be where we are today without the help of our entire community of supporters.

Together, we are ready to become the first company to build a regional ammonia plant through a grass-roots ownership model.
