‘It’s the right thing to do’
After taking over the family farm in Arispe just a year and a-half ago, farmer Denny Wimmer is now offering certified natural produce at Creston Hy-Vee, four farmers’ markets, one co-op and selling to a variety of local businesses.
Wimmer Farms, which is six years shy of becoming a century farm, was purchased by Wimmer and his wife Patty in 2011 after returning to Iowa from Chicago, after 29 years. Wimmer, who grew up in Arispe and later studied argonomy at Iowa State University, said his focus is on organic and naturally-grown food because “it’s the right thing to do.”
“The most important thing is to ask where it (produce) came from and how it was grown,” said Wimmer.
