Taking Our Corn Feed Local

August 18, 2023

Throughout the summer, we have been celebrating Appareo’s 20-year anniversary. As part of the celebration, we’ve been hosting events for our team members at Appareo. On Wednesday, August 16, we held a corn feed for our employees.

Rather than going to a large chain grocery store to purchase cobs of corn, we decided to utilize a local farm in our area. Driscoll Farms is a third-generation family-owned farm near the Fargo-Moorhead metro. They have been providing flowers and produce for the community for 57 years. Did you know that Minnesota is the second largest sweet corn producer in the US? 

The Support Continues

The support for our community’s farmers didn’t stop there. A member of our team had an amazing group of neighbors get together to husk all of the corn. After the group was done shucking them, they took the husks out to a local farmer to use as feed for their show pigs and show goats.

We are thrilled to support local farmers while also celebrating our company and culture with our employees.
