Chad Hillis joined Chess Ag’s farm management team in 2018. With a life-long passion for farming, he is a natural fit for the Chess Ag team. Chad grew up on his family farm in Mississippi before starting his professional career in 1997. He has spent the past 20 plus years farming a variety of crops including cotton, corn, rice, soybeans and milo. Having recently relocated to Oregon, Chad is busy applying his extensive farming experience on our blueberry and hazelnut farms. When not in the fields, you can find Chad fishing, hunting, traveling, and exploring new crops and agricultural technology.
