Farewell & Best Wishes to Tammy Park

This week we bid farewell to a dedicated, long-time employee, active community member and most of all a wonderful friend…Tammy Park. Tammy has a big smile that can light up a room and a great sense of humor. She came to work every day with a positive attitude and the highest level of professionalism. Tammy will be greatly missed by our entire team and our customers.

A Message From Tammy

“Time flies when you’re having fun!! I can’t believe it has been 17 years since we moved to the area. We took a huge leap of faith and it paid off. We were able to work and raise our family in a great farming community, and make many lifelong friends along the way! Even though it will be hard to leave, we are looking forward to being back in South Dakota with our families. It has been a pleasure getting to know and work with all of you over the last 4 years. I can tell you that you are working with a great team at AgVenture Pinnacle/Corn Capital Innovations that truly care about you and your business! I wish you all the best and remember, it isn’t the farm that makes the farmer, it’s the hard work and character!”

Trip Down Memory Lane

Don’t worry we won’t let Tammy leave without embarrassing her a little bit! Here’s a trip down memory lane with a few photos…starting with her farewell party with our employees. Some are a bit more professional and some are down right silly. Enjoy!

We’ve worked hard to make sure that our team and customers and well taken care of. We’re excited to welcome Allison Larsen as our new Office Coordinator.

We’d love for you to help us send Tammy off to South Dakota with a bunch of well wishes. Feel free to leave a comment below.

Develop a Cropping Plan – Because You Can’t Control the Weather!

The most important element to produce a great corn crop is weather, BUT….we cannot control the weather.

Cropping Plan

Every year we deal with the conditions we are given.  That’s why a well-developed cropping plan is so important to minimize the damage from the more than one-thousand variables that affect our crop every year.

Consult the Specialists
