About Upgrowth Ag
Upgrowth Ag was founded by the pairing of East and West. Utah based farmers Nate and Colt Sargent recognized the struggles their international friends and associates faced supporting livestock, especially as much of the alfalfa surrounding them was being shipped to Asia at high cost. That's when they partnered with close friends Jake and Vivian Kim, North Korean defectors with a determination to assist their people in South Korea with sustainability in agriculture, and a bond was made.

With their combined backgrounds, the team at Upgrowth Ag is driven to finding the best sustainable livestock feed options and delivering them to the international market, particularly Asia. They represent a mix of the old and the new, and a willingness to sift to find the best products, solutions, and services in the livestock feed industry.
