Astor Farms is the brainchild of Rob Ellis, an engineer and businessman. He holds a degree in Chemical Engineering from NC State
University and along with his brother, Jon Ellis, runs a chemical manufacturing company started by their father in 1974. Jon is a partner
in Astor Farms and his background in economics is an asset to both businesses. Jon and Rob have both benefited greatly from the
knowledge passed on from their father, Jon Ellis, Sr., who was a savvy businessman and whose continued mentoring is invaluable.
