A Look at Small-Town Business Where Pork Reigns

Washington, IA Update 6 1 20

Washington County, Iowa is No. 1 in pork production in the state and the third largest in the country, according to the 2017 Census of Agriculture. While it’s been work as usual since mid-March on many farms, that hasn’t been the case for restaurants, shops and other businesses in the county seat, Washington.  

While a return to normal will take time, local residents, a producer who serves on the Washington Chamber of Commerce and an essential businessowner share a slice of life as businesses start to slowly open their doors one by one.
