The values Eldon built the company on 85 years ago continue to be the cornerstone of our business today. We believe these foundational elements are what have got us this far and will continue to drive our mission to serve our customers, our employees, and our community for success.
To celebrate the employees who truly embrace and reflect the Stutsman core values, the STRIVEr program was born. Each month, employees nominate fellow co-workers who have gone above and beyond in living out the Stutsman values. The nominations are reviewed, voted upon, and the STRIVEr of that particular month is then announced at our monthly employee luncheon.

Stutsman Core Values
Set the Bar Higher
The agriculture industry’s core foundation is based on innovation and adaptation. In order to stay on the forefront of the industry and continue to grow as a company, it is imperative that we remain open to new ideas, concepts, and methods with optimism. By being proactive and challenging the status quo, we can continue to move the standard in the right direction.
Take the Lead
No matter the task, no matter the position, we have an attitude of ownership and sense of initiative. The ability to make decisions with the company’s well-being in mind, as well as having the accountability to follow through with getting the job done, are traits conducive to success. Taking the lead includes questioning actions that are not consistent with our mission and values.
Attitudes are extremely contagious, so it is crucial we have ones worthy of catching. By being a “carrier” for optimism and enthusiasm we create an enjoyable and rewarding atmosphere.
Being authentic is not just about being true to ourselves but upholding integrity in every aspect of life. Being honest, doing the right thing, and holding ourselves accountable in all that we say and do are true measures of a genuine person and company.
Maximizing teamwork and communication across the entire company is essential to overall success. By keeping our communication open and honest while breaking down internal barriers, we can foster unity, understanding, and overall productivity. After all, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” -Henry Ford.
In 1934 Eldon Stutsman made service the cornerstone of the company, and after all this time, exceptional service still defines who we are. Whether it’s our co-workers, our vendors, or especially our customers, we are driven to exceed their expectations.
