Why Choose Boring + Taylor

The company’s history in Indiana agriculture extends back to 1853. It was then that Jacob L. Boring received 80 acres of land in accordance with the Federal Homestead Act. Three generations of the Boring family have lived on and farmed those 80 acres. They also farm other acres around the Indianapolis and New Palestine area.

Boring + Taylor’s original founder, Gary Boring, was raised on the original family land. Gary and his son—current Partner, Mike Boring—both worked on the family farm growing up. There, they developed an appreciation for agriculture that carried over into their careers.
