Around 1:30 am on February 21, 2016, the Dakota Style Chip Production facility was destroyed by a fire. There were no injuries & no one was working at the time of the fire. However, due to this loss, we regret that we are unable to provide our Dakota Style Kettle Cooked Potato Chips & Dakota Style Kettle Shake, at this time. We are currently working with our insurance company to assess the damage to the building & are also discussing options on how to move forward with chip production.

The Dakota Style Sunflower Seeds & Sunflower Kernels portion of the business was not affected by the fire. The Dakota Style Chip factory is located 7 miles away from our seed & kernel facility, so production at that facility will continue as usual.
