Katie Pinke is a fifth generation North Dakotan and her passion has the same foundation as those who attended the annual Kandiyohi Corn & Soybean Growers Association meeting on Monday, Jan. 11. Heritage Bank and Pioneer Heritage Insurance teamed up with the association and welcomed Katie Pinke as the keynote speaker. Katie’s blog site, http://thepinkepost.com, is a compilation and reflection on her life on the prairie as a mom, wife and advocate for family, food and farming.
Nearly 175 corn and soybean growers from Kandiyohi County and the surrounding area came together at the American Legion Club in Willmar to share a meal and participate in a brief meeting before Ms. Pinke engaged the crowd with ideas to promote farming and farm products in our communities.
Thank you to all who attended – Heritage Bank and Pioneer Heritage Insurance are proud to be co-sponsors of this annual event working toward the continued advancement of agriculture in central Minnesota.
