Diverse Agriculture & Renewable Energy Opportunities

Kandiyohi County has deep roots in agriculture and a bright future as well. Our strong agriculture sector makes us a prime location for agribusiness, bioscience and technology businesses. Many industry leaders such as Nova-Tech Engineering, Select Genetics, RELCO, LLC and Jennie-O Turkey Store are headquartered here in West Central Minnesota’s business hub. Recently, we’ve made some great strides towards creating a more eco-friendly business community by investing our time in renewable energy efforts.

The EDC is committed to working collaboratively with local farmers and ag-related industries through our Agriculture & Renewable Energy Development Committee. The committee’s mission is “To sustain, identify and develop agriculture, agribusiness, and renewable energy opportunities.” It supports this mission by targeting activities that leverage Kandiyohi County’s assets in agriculture, with a special emphasis on ag business, manufacturing, bioscience, technology, energy, and research.

Quick Facts:

  • Diverse ag economy with over 1,300 farms
  • Produced enough wind & solar energy to power 1,280 homes
