Hallock is located in the Red River Valley, home to some of the best soil for farming in the world. Agriculture is a major influence in the area. Within one-half hour’s drive are the northern tall-grass prairie, Aspen park-land, and northern Minnesota forested areas. Because of its location, Hallock is a diverse community with many different opportunities and activities.
For its small size, Hallock still enjoys many wonderful and well-kept facilities, which anchor this small community: a K-12 school with nearby ice arena, public library, hospital and nursing home and Kittson County Courthouse.
Agriculture is the major industry of the area. Farmers depend on Hallock and Hallock depends on farmers. Located in the heart of the productive Red River Valley, farming and its related industries provide a large share of the employment and tax base for the community. Recently, soybeans have become the largest acreage crop in the area. Wheat and barley are the major small grains grown as well as some rye. Sugar beets, canola and sunflowers are also well suited for this area. Hallock is conveniently located for marketing and processing of raw products. Our large grain elevator has “unit train” capabilities as well as sufficient storage space for the harvest.
Sugar beets are processed at American Crystal Sugar Company located in Drayton, North Dakota, about 20 miles southwest of Hallock. This is one of five such processing plants located in the Red River Valley. CHS Hallock, Inc, a CHS canola processing plant, is six miles south of Hallock.
