Hallock is located in the Red River Valley, home of 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.
Building blocks of the community are its facilities including quality schools, hospital & nursing home, Kittson County Courthouse, dentist, optometrist, and pharmacy. Other businesses include several construction firms, newspaper, attorneys, CPAs and many other service related businesses. Hallock also has a world class water supply.
Agriculture is the major industry of the Hallock 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 an American Crystal Sugar Company plant 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. A CHS canola processing plant is also 6 miles south of Hallock.
