Bushel Boy Farms new president drives growth, innovation

Tryon’s breadth and depth of experience in food and agriculture includes leadership positions with Pillsbury, General Mills and Ecolab, where he led initiatives related to business strategy, commercial operations, market expansion, customer acquisition, food safety and sustainable agriculture. He joined the Bushel Boy team in late 2020 during a period of growth for the company.

These innovations will be supported by newly expanded, high-tech growing facilities – including a 16.5-acre greenhouse in Mason City which opened in December of 2020 and a 4.5-acre research and development greenhouse in Bushel Boy’s flagship operation in Owatonna which opened last winter. Together, the two expansions created 50 new jobs.

“We’ve put together a leadership team with the experience and skills required to drive business growth coming out of a very challenging pandemic year,” said Tryon. “I look forward to working with a team who are just as driven by their passion for innovation and commitment to sustainable practices as I am.”
