Julie Van Manen

Between feeding cattle, caring for pigs, picking sweet corn and planting and harvesting corn and soybeans, Julie Van Manen and her husband Kevin stay busy on their farm near Kellogg. Their children Jacob and Emily learned the value of hard work at a young age with J&E’s Sweet Corn, a 20-year family business. Julie is a teacher by trade and enjoys hosting groups of all ages out to the farm to see where the miracle of food comes from — the farm.
