WHAT'S IN A NAME?
The history of where the name 300 Acres came from.
Depending on how much time you have, this section will be split into the short version, and the long version.
The Short Version
300 Acres was the best name that Nick and his previous partner could come up after a few barley pops.
300 Acres is about 14 Million square feet.
The Long Version
To get to the roots of our name, we need to go back another 7 years before the official start of 300 Acres. Back then, Nick was into naming things (every vehicle had a name prior to that point), and he had just bought an acreage that (obviously) needed a name. The acreage is only 2 acres, and Nick wanted to do a play on that somehow, but 2 Acres just sounded tiny. So after much thought (or probably not that much thought), 2 Acres added a couple 0's and became 200 Acres. Nick had a design business at that time called GD Designs, and he changed the name of that business to match the name of his acreage. Then, in 2010 when Nick was approached to partner up with another local seed dealer, they brainstormed for hours trying to come up with a name. Adding 100 acres, and becoming 300 Acres was the best name that Nick and his previous partner could come up with after a few barley pops.
So there you have it. We never said it was an exciting story, but it's a story nonetheless.
