Tell us about the beginning of Frontier Hybrids.
Frontier Hybrids, Inc. is one of AgVenture’s independently owned and operated seed companies, located in Abernathy, TX. Founded in 1984, Frontier Hybrids is a family-owned seed company dedicated to selling AgVenture brand corn, as well as other seed products including sorghum, alfalfa, wheat, and native grasses.
Dan Ryan started the business out of his family garage when he obtained the Frontier trademark. Dan, who grew up on a family farm, holds a degree from Texas A&M in Range Management. Donna, his wife, an OU graduate, helped with cattle ranching growing up. Together they both have had a close bond with friends in the small town of Abernathy and have sponsored a local teacher luncheon, a number of dealer meetings, and a community barbeque.
