We push brands beyond their first Ten Acres with our experience, fun, and creativity to tell the stories of those who put food on our plates.
Ten Acre is a marketing firm that positions brands to advance agriculture and produce. It is founded on a lifetime of farming experience, a wealth of marketing knowledge, and an unrivaled industry network.
Founded in 2019, by a 4th generation potato farmer with the confidence of a farmer’s voice, Ten Acre is a catalyst for growth across an expanding agricultural supply chain. Together with a world-class team, healthy respect, and a deep understanding of the rapid pace of changes in agriculture and produce.
Ten Acre company name was inspired by Leah’s Great Grandfather, Hallie Halverson.
He started growing potatoes in 1928 in a small town in North Dakota. He used what he knew about the market, the environment, and consumer trends, creativity, and a great deal of passion, to do something different and set the stage for something even greater.
That sentiment has lasted for over four generations, and the farm has grown to over 30,000 acres.
It all started with Ten Acres.
