Tim was raised on an irrigated farm in a portion of Grant County known as the Columbia Basin. He graduated from Ricks College in 2001 with a degree in Agronomy (crop and soil science), followed by a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture at Washington State University in 2003. After this he received his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in the spring of 2005.
