Todd Du Mond graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2001 and returned home to the farm. In 2003, he officially decided agriculture was his career calling. That same year, after taking over the farm operations, Todd began DuMond Ag’s soybean roasting business, which is now recognized as part of DuMond Grain.
Once he chose to take over his family’s farm, Todd fostered its significant expansion over the years. In 2006, the farm increased its acreage from six-hundred to over two-thousand; now, DuMond Ag farms almost six-thousand acres of crops. In 2010, Todd began DuMond Trucking to improve transportation methods for the local farm community. Similarly, in 2015, he expanded DuMond Grain’s processing business to include corn grinding, which yielded cornmeal as a new commodity produced by the farm. Most recently, Todd created a cover crop seed dealership as another piece of DuMond Ag’s ever-growing enterprise.
Todd has served on The New York Corn and Soybean Growers Association board for over ten years. He is also nearing the end of his nine-year term as New York’s representative in the American Soybean Association.
As Owner and Operator of DuMond Ag, Todd strives to drive the local agriculture industry forward and diversify the business with fresh, innovative ideas. He was drawn to the agriculture industry based on his innate love of the land and its ability to provide. Todd recognizes and thrives off of the inherent reward that comes with production agriculture.
Todd ultimately aims to operate a progressive, 21st-century farm while preserving a traditionally agricultural lifestyle. He prides himself on his team’s strong work ethic and commitment to producing superior-quality products. Todd aims to foster an enjoyable work environment at DuMond Ag. He works continuously to develop a positive work/life balance for himself, his family, and his employees.
When he is not working at DuMond Ag, Todd can be found spending every free moment with his family: his wife, Courtney, and their three children. He also enjoys outdoor sports, including skiing, hiking, rock climbing, and camping.
