Adaption and innovation have enabled Garwood Enterprises Inc. to find new sources of revenue for the family-owned business in Dakota City, Neb. Current President and CEO Douglas Garwood directs the various operations with his son, Scott. The company´s farming operations consists of approximately 1,400 acres of row crops.
