North Star Ag, a short-line equipment dealership located at Tower City, in Barnes County, was started in 2009 by Zane and Cami Erickson on their family farm north of Buffalo. They carry brands including Meridian, Unverferth and Valmar. The new Interstate location offers visibility, customer access, a larger facility and greater outside display area. An enhanced business presence elevates confidence of customers and manufacturers.

Agricultural producers continuously seek opportunities to secure equipment at the best possible price.  North Star Ag serves its customers by offering specific products and a strong parts and services department. Cami and Zane seized the opportunity to go from a small, on-farm location operation to a major interstate location establishing a full-fledged dealership committed to the agricultural sector.

Business expansions such as North Star Ag are helping main street businesses by keeping customers in Barnes County to purchase other products and services in the community. Positive impacts to the community are increased employment, services, products and tax base. Building community and quality of life are critical to keeping customers here, minimizing commuting and turnover, and capturing the full benefits of primary sector job creation. 

Outcomes of this project include new facilities, increased employment, and economic impact to other sectors in the economy. Wages generated translate into purchases in grocery and hardware stores, specialty shops, and other businesses. Congratulations on your expansion and thank you North Star Ag for investing in your community!
