Poet
Sponsor Level:
Description:

For more than two decades, POET has defined the art of biorefining. We have grown from a single, humble refinery in Scotland, South Dakota, to one of the world’s largest producers of ethanol and other biorefined products.

With products like our Dakota Gold distillers grains, Voila™ corn oil and INVIZ™ zein, we are using that same innovative spirit to develop natural, renewable food sources and alternatives to petrochemicals.

We have an integrated business model that combines technology development with expertise in construction, operations, risk management and marketing.

Our engineers and scientists have developed technology and processes through rigorous testing at POET’s laboratories and pilot-scale plant.

While the scope of our vision has grown, we remain focused on reducing the reliance of the United States on foreign energy, to revitalizing global agriculture, and providing a cleaner, affordable alternative to fossil fuels.

At POET, we believe our future looks so much brighter above the ground!

Stengel Seed & Grain Co
Sponsor Level:
Description:

Stengel Seed & Grain Co., located near Milbank, S.D., is a family-owned business with 40 years of experience in cleaning all types of grains and beans for the organic food industry. Owned by Doug and Tim Stengel, and aided by eight long-term employees, Stengel Seed strives to grow in excellence and innovation in the field of grain processing.
With five different cleaning lines and two color sorters, Stengel Seed can run different products simultaneously to efficiently meet the needs and timeline of their customers. The processing plant is certified and audited by AIB International, certified organic through International Certification Services including USDA NOP, EC 834/2007 Equivalence and is COR and JAS compliant; Kosher certified by UMK; and a South Dakota Seed Conditioner.The Stengel’s enjoy a long tradition of growing and cleaning grain.

Doug and Tim’s grandfather and father did on-farm grain cleaning of their seed. Now Doug primarily manages the processing plant and Tim attends to the farming. Tim’s wife, Sue, is the office manager/bookkeeper at the plant. Other employees include: Mike Robertson, main mill manager; Frank Remington, plant and machine maintenance; Harlan Bohn, warehouse; Drew Tschakert, bean and barley plant; Andrea Bohn, quality control; Tim Lindgren and Nathan Stengel, general labor and bagging.

While the process of cleaning grain has not changed greatly over the last 100 years, the equipment has been improved with modern materials and technology. The modern food industry requires near perfection in cleanliness. While perfection is seldom obtained, we strive to make each lot as clean as possible. This often requires very specialized equipment or unusual steps to achieve that high standard of purity. Stengel Seed often manufactures its own specialized cleaners. These specific cleaners, along with a very rigorous quality program, has enabled them to meet or exceed industry quality standards.

Many different toll customers rely on Stengel Seed to process to their required specifications. Growers in the Midwest and Canada truck their grain to the plant near Milbank. Product is cleaned and then packaged in 25 lb. bags on up to 1,000 KG totes or true bulk loads. Orders ship by truck domestically in the U.S. and by overseas containers to Europe and Japan. Stengel Seed and Grain Co. is proud to be a part of the growing organic food industry.

Valley Queen Cheese Factory, Inc.
Sponsor Level:
Description:

Two Swiss immigrants and an unexpected stop for gas.

It’s funny how things happen, but that’s a synopsis of how we got our start in 1929. Aspiring cheese makers Alfred Nef and Alfred Gonzenbach were looking for a new home for their small Wisconsin cheese plant. While Alfred Gonzenbach was on his way to Montana to inspect a new promising site, he stopped in Milbank, South Dakota, for gas.

When area businessmen discovered their intentions, they quickly rallied to persuade the duo to change their plans. Montana’s loss soon became Milbank’s gain and Valley Queen Cheese was born.

Today, we proudly employ over 200 people in our small community. And we’ve become a key partner for national food processors looking for quality cheese and whey products to bring their own products to life.
