“Stricks runs a first-class operation. Their origination strength and focus on the farmer, along with Montana’s proven record of reliably growing premium quality pulses has built a strong foundation. We look forward to investing further and integrating our cultures, experience, and personnel,” stated Mike Kincaid, President of The Redwood Group, LLC.
