Known as the best farmland in the country, the Traer area's black soil produces some of the highest yields of corn and soybeans.  Farmers in Tama and surrounding counties depend on Traer's businesses to help their businesses succeed...  
Seed sales, fertilizer application, detasseling, weighing and storing. 

If you're looking to become a famer or purchase/rent addition land, speak to one of our local real estate agencies.

It's not just corn and soybeans that you see in the area; cattle, hogs and horses also dot our landscape.  We even have specialty "farmers" who provide the fresh fruits and vegetables for our summer farmer's market.  And on the rolling hills surrounding the town, you can even find a vineyard.
