Why Choose Redefined Horizons For Agricultural Land Surveys?

Both the partners in Redefined Horizons have a long history of surveying to support agriculture. Dani grew up in the farms west of Modesto in Stanislaus County. He performed surveys for agricultural operations during his time at Hawkins and Associates. Landon grew up in the Flathead Valley of Northwest Montana, home to timber harvesting and the farming of wheat, mint, apples and cherries. He spent several years of his early career doing extensive surveys in farms of the Sacramento/San Joauin Delta.
