Joe Paxton has been a cooperative member since 1974. Joe graduated from Greenfield-Central High School and attended Purdue University. He is self-employed as a farmer-owner-operator of Paxton Enterprises which manages 2400 acres of farmland. He is currently a member and on the Board of Directors for Farm Bureau Incorporated. He is also a member and past trustee of Eden United Methodist Church. Joe and his wife Patty have two grown children, Michelle Hasty and Joe Paul Paxton and four grandchildren.
Over the past 17 years, I have had the privilege to represent our cooperative. I take great pride in representing my community as a director. In my tenure, I have seen two outstanding cooperatives merge into one nationally recognized organization. NineStar’s future is bright because of the employees, but also because of the unique relationship among directors and member-owners of our cooperative. Looking forward, there will be some challengers with our highly regulated environment, but with my years of education and experience as a director, I am confident this cooperative will continue moving forward as a leader in the industry. I am focused on the future and want to continue to serve to all NineStar members.
