Chris Garza - Maximum Outdoors
Born and raised in Deckerville, MI and having known forever that I wanted to make my living and live in this rural community my whole life. Growing up, the outdoors was a huge part of my life and I can’t imagine what my life would be without it! I was taught most of my knowledge about the outdoors from my grandfather, father and uncle at an early age and use that valuable information not only while in the outdoors, but also in life everyday! Family is the most important thing in my life, and being able to pass on lessons learned over time back to my children is what drives my passion for life and the great outdoors! I’m blessed to be married to wife Andrea Garza; our greatest blessing in our lives has been our children! Maddy, Hunter, and our little toot Mya, have kept us busy, but are the most important part of our lives! My passion for the outdoors began a long time ago with the dream of being a farmer. I grew up in an agriculture driven area and somehow just knew it was what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. Through hard work and paying my dues I’ve been able to achieve my dream and currently operate my own 1600 acre cash crop farm which my wife and I built from 16 acres in which we purchased from my grandfather. The love of the outdoors grew each day I spent working the land and seeing how much conservation meant to ensure the passing of everything we worked so hard for to the next generation. My passion is growing things from the ground up and fully understand that setting a firm set of roots is the first step to ensuring success in everything I do.
