Darcy Hansen is an agronomy consultant at Star of the West Milling, where she helps farmers put together their crop plans and scouts fields to identify solutions. She and her husband Coy also raise Black Angus cattle, Boer goats, and pigs at their home in Minden City – which she jokingly calls their funny farm. Darcy is a 4-H leader, 4-H Fair Superintendent, Chair of Promotion & Education for Sanilac County Farm Bureau, and township clerk. With increased demand for local meat due to COVID-19, she and Coy plan on expanding their farm in 2020.

Darcy talks about:

  • How some new procedures due to the pandemic are making business more efficient
  • Why she loves her last three years on the Star team
  • Her surprise engagement at the county fair
  • Stopping at roadside stands on her honeymoon to ask about farming
  • Using all of her organizational experience to do a township drive-through food pantry
