Hi, I am Kylie. I am so glad you found us. Here are just a few things about me. I graduated from Purdue University in 2016 with a BS in Management and Accounting, Boiler Up! I am most importantly a mom first to my three babies, Haedyn (5), Palmer (3), and Brooks (1), I am sure you will see them around, they are a part of the team. I have been working on an Agriculture start up company as well as farming, flipping houses and managing the financials for the family farm. My husband and I have been dreaming of starting a venture together, and here we are, we are going for it! We are starting BugHut to provide everyday consumers with safe and sustainable products to grow their flowers, plants and gardens. Once you try it, you will never go back. Take a look around, and Happy Growing! 

Hey guys, Paul here. I hope you are finding everything you need. I am a Purdue graduate with a degree in Finance. My wife and three children are my world. I have spent the extent of my career in sales and love the challenge of generating new business. In my free time I enjoy golfing, hunting, and spending time with family and friends. I have always aspired to own a business and I am excited for this endeavor. We have a lot of exciting products that we can't wait for you to get your hands on. We felt that the market was missing a sustainable method for everyday consumers to grow their plants, flowers and gardens. Our products are easy to use and safe for people, pets and the planet. If you have any questions feel free to call or email us anytime.    

I am Steven Vistad. I grew up on a farm in North Eastern North Dakota. I have worked in US agriculture ever since graduating from college at NDSU in Fargo ND.  After several years working with Ag retailers, I had an opportunity to enter the biological industry selling and developing new products that focus on using bacteria to enhance plant, soil and water health. Beneficial soil and plant bacteria are fascinating and amazing little creatures that can provide so much benefit to your plant. Beneficial bacteria can do many things, they can increase nutrient availability, plant health, manage stress, the list goes on and on. There are billions of bacteria living in our soils and they all are unique and present for specific reasons. We focus on understanding the bacteria that perform specific beneficial functions in the plant or soil to bring our customers the greatest benefit.  I am amazed every day at how well our products perform at home in the yard and garden. I am really excited for the future of what is still to come in the biological plant health industry.
