Celebrating Our Local Producers

Celebrating Our Local Producers

The week of March 21 is National Ag Week and National Ag Day is celebrated on March 22!

Agriculture, as we know here in Iowa and within our own community, is an important and integral part of our economy and culture.

Did you know, each American farmer feeds more than 165 people ... a dramatic increase from 25 people in the 1960s. Quite simply, American agriculture is doing more - and doing it better. As the world population soars, there is an even greater demand for the food and fiber produced in the United States.

This week, we celebrate our local producers here in and around Jefferson that we serve and all that they do for our community.

Cunningham Row Crop

The Cunningham’s are proud Midwestern row crop farmers. Matt and Sarah Cunningham along with sons Hugh and Hank work alongside Matt’s dad and uncle in Northern Greene and Webster County.

Frederick Family Farming

Bill and Melissa Frederick, along with daughters Leah and Kate, are another local multi-generational farming family.  They have a diversified farming operation, raising corn, soybeans and small grains along with their cattle operation. Bill is also a co-owner of Iowa Cover Crop.  Bill focuses heavily on conservation initiatives such as no-till, cover crops and crop rotations.

Hunter Family Farm

Bryant and Ashley Hunter, along with their two sons, Brix and Jax, raise corn and soybeans in and around the Ogden area. Bryant is proud to be a sixth-generation farmer working alongside his dad and uncle.

Robbins Land & Cattle

Justin and Lacie Robbins manage their Iowa row crop and cattle operation based on the responsible use of natural resources. The Robbins utilize cover crops to suppress weed pressure, reduce input costs, and retain essential nutrients. From rotational grazing to cover crop seedling, the family’s efforts to improve water quality and soil health go hand-in-hand with their purebred Angus operation.

Wessling Family Farm

Bruce and Jenny Wessling are fourth generation farmers from Grand Junction. Their farming operation consists of corn and soybeans. They also own and manage three 2,500 head hog buildings. Recently their daughter and son-in-law joined the operation along with future farmer, Grandson Vaughn.
