Ron Hefty founded Hefty Seed Co. in 1969 as Hefty Farm Supply. As time went on, seed sales became a major focus for Ron, and led to the only name change in company history. Hefty Farm Supply became Hefty Seed Co. in 1984. That same year, a seed cleaning facility was constructed at Baltic. Hefty Seed Company handles ag chemicals, seed, equipment, and fertilizer.
