Ryan & Kristin Mullenhoff / Owners
Ryan and Kristin were born and raised on farms near Leigh, so farming has always been a big part of their lives. Shortly before they were married on Valentine's Day in 2004, they started a small seed corn and soybean business. At first they were hesitant. At that time they were the owners of Mullenhoff Trucking and found their days busy hauling pigs and helping manage the family farm. Although neither of them were familiar with the ins and outs of the seed business, they took a leap of faith and started Ryan Mullenhoff Seeds. They thought, at the time it would be a short-term opportunity for their family which would soon be expanding. They welcomed their son Jackson Charles in May of 2005.
Over the next couple of years, they quickly found this "short-term" opportunity to become their forever future. In 2010, they added fertilizer and a list of other services prompting them to change their name to Ryan Mullenhoff Sales, LLC. Over the years they have continued to expand both the business, and their sales team. They have successfully grown into one of the most trusted full-service Ag Dealerships in the area, with 3 locations, serving customers from 4 states. Known for their excellent customer service, community involvement, and 24-7 service, they have been proudly building relationships with farmers for over a decade. Due to their ever expanding business and sales team, in 2020 they officially changed the company name to REDSTAR, LLC.
