09-12-2018 in Green Farmstead Partner
Greenworld, Inc. is located in Sioux Center, Iowa, where they grow their own stock of trees, shrubs, and other plants. Founded in 1981 by Larry Ribbens, Greenworld, Inc., has continued to grow as a family-based company. Their services include installing landscape, placing retaining walls, water features, and irrigation. They also seed and sod grass, place patios and fireplaces, and install outdoor lighting.
They grow most of their own plants and trees; offering bareroot, potted, and some ball and burlap options. At their Sioux Center location, they also have a tree field which allows them to plant larger trees on properties. Greenworld, Inc., enjoys working with farmers and are very welcoming of their business.
“In our area, farmers are 100% of what drives our economy. We want to help them because they are providing and stimulating our economy all of the time,” says Eric Ribbens, co-owner of Greenworld, Inc. They work with cost-share programs for farmers to use trees on their properties to knock down smell and beautify the landscape. Trees can also be important in this area of flat land to reduce wind erosion.
“I think the Coalition is a great asset to have in our back pocket,” says Ribbens. If you are interested in learning how trees can benefit your livestock operation, contact the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers at 515-225-5531 or at supportfarmers.com.
