Hunting with Heroes

SLEEPY EYE, MINN. – This past Veteran’s Day, Christensen Farms & Feedlots, Inc. (CF) was proud to support the Hunting with Heroes program, a non-profit organization focused on the physical and emotional healing of our nation’s military heroes through community support, camaraderie and hunting/fishing in the rural communities of Iowa.

Each year, during the weekend of Veteran’s Day, veterans are flown into Iowa from all over the country to attend Hunting with Heroes. The veterans had a chance to meet with the Iowa State volleyball and basketball games before spending their weekend hunting pheasants, geese and ducks on donated land. On Sunday evening, they attended a Veteran’s Appreciation Banquet in Lakota, IA, where community members and veterans are invited to attend to honor our veterans.

Christensen Farms was proud to be a donor of the appreciation banquet this year by providing Daily’s bacon to attendees. Each attendee received three pounds of bacon from CF’s partner, Daily’s Premium Meats. CF Service Manager Nich Holland, who has been involved in the organization the past few years, plays an integral role in the success of this weekend every year on behalf of CF. This year CF volunteers also included Service Manager Ryan Finer, Production Manager Adrienne Brammeier and Production Manager Justin Murray. CF also recognizes all the Hunting with Heroes leaders for their dedication to appreciating veterans who serve and protect our country.
