Renks support rural Wisconsin through Wisconsin Rural Opportunities Foundation (

According to Richard Renk, his family's farming history dates back to 1846 when his ancestors came over and settled in the Sun Prairie area. “It’s very much a farming community,” he says, adding that his grandfather completed the UW-Madison Farm and Industry Short Course in 1898 and a number of those in the generations that followed graduated from UW-Madison.  The Renk Seed Corporation – or William F. Renk and Sons – was started in 1936 and is the oldest farm family corporation in the United States.

Blogger's Note: Sun Prairie was founded on strong farming families, and agriculture remains a key part of our local economy.  We're thankful to the Renk family for all they do for Sun Prairie, for Wisconsin and for agriculture.
