Heartland Pork

Heartland Pork

Heartland Pork grew out of three separate businesses – feed management, building construction and swine production – into one business enterprise. Heartland grew to become the thirteenth largest pork producer in the United States. In 2004 the company was acquired by Christensen Farms while producing 1.2 million pigs annually. The resulting company became the fourth largest pork producer in the United States.

Hawkeye Renewables, LLC was developed in 2003 as the builder and controlling company of two ethanol plants located in Iowa Falls and Fairbank, Iowa. With Bruce Rastetter serving as CEO, Hawkeye Renewables grew to become the second largest pure-play ethanol producer in the country before its sale to Flint Hills Resources in 2010.
