1988 Our Farm Management Start
Parker Ag Services, LLC – Company Profile & History
Parker Ag Services, LLC was a full service biosolids and organics management company serving Colorado. Parker Ag was a family owned and professionally managed business with its roots firmly set in agriculture and farm management. The company was originally founded as a farm management business in 1988 and the owners were raised on family farms in Colorado. Because of this agriculture background, Parker Ag recognized the value of biosolids and organic resource recycling.
Parker Ag’s first foray into biosolids management was its involvement with the land application of biosolids material from New York City to the dryland wheat ground in southeastern Colorado. Parker Ag participated in the development and application of the public outreach and educational aspects of the program, assisted in preparation of detailed site-specific data necessary to achieve regulatory approvals from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and USEPA Region 8, and provided operational services once biosolids from New York reached Colorado. The overwhelming success of the project, both on a local level and nationally, served as a springboard from which Parker Ag developed a local land application business.

In 1993 Parker Ag began their first land application contract. Since that date Parker Ag expanded from one truck and tanker to a large fleet of semi tractors and land application units. They expanded from the original owner operating the equipment to over fifty employees with contracts in all four corners of the State of Colorado. The original operational base was in Limon, CO, which continues to be the administrative office today.
The first remote office was established in Lamar, CO in 1998 to support the land application of New York City biosolids. In the spring of 2001, Parker Ag Services acquired Westvac Environmental of Dillon, CO and opened their second remote office. This acquisition not only provided Parker Ag a local presence in a fast growing region in Colorado it also brought with it an operating compost site which was used locally by Summit County generators to compost biosolids for local mine reclamation.
