Whiskey Creek Inc. is a fifth-generation family farming business based in Woodbury County, Iowa. The company has grain farming operations in Iowa, South Dakota and Arkansas and a livestock feedlot in Iowa. In 2012 we added an insurance business, which offers weather, multiple peril and hail crop insurance options to area growers.
Whiskey Creek Inc. employs an experienced team of nearly 50 and has a vertically integrated operation, with all areas of the business supporting the goals and needs of the enterprise. This creates efficiencies and gives us needed flexibility in our day-to-day operations.
Being a family farm is an important part of our identity, and it shapes our decisions every day, in big and small ways. One example of our family orientation and community commitment is the land we’ve set aside for growing pecans, organic apples and other fruit. These orchards exist not for their commercial value but for the enjoyment of friends, family and neighbors.
We also own a restored vintage fire engine. This truck regularly pulls the family’s float in the annual Fourth of July parade in Bronson, Iowa, where members of the Peterson family have lived for 130 years.
