Wednesday, February 13, 9 a.m., Entrepreneur Tom Smude will discuss the growth of his business, Smude's Sunflower Oil. 

Smude and his wife, Jenni, launched their Pierz-based manufacturing business in 2009 after almost losing their 160-acre farm during the 2007-08 drought.  In a cost-effective move, the couple turned to sunflowers.  That decision has spun into products that include different sunflower oils and natural microwave popcorn. It's an exciting story of ingenuity, perseverance, and growth. Please see the attached press release for more information.
