Mike and Mona Evens have, in one way or another, always been a part of Du Nord. Of course when their daughter said she wanted to start a distillery, they were bound to lend a helping hand. Today the Evens' grow corn and soybeans on their farms in Canby, Ivanhoe, and Cold Spring, Minnesota. The homestead farm in Cold Spring is the home to the corn that forms the basis of each of Du Nord's products. In 2014, Du Nord made the move to non-GMO corn; that corn has been grown at the Cold Spring farm ever since. Though they certainly enjoy their trips to the cities to bring corn to the distillery, Mike would rather be fishing, Mona would rather be hiking in the northwoods with her dog, and they both would rather be playing with their 3 grandchildren.
