Today, Russell has stepped down from the company but still crosses the field to come to the office every day, Cindy now serves as president, Ruth Anne oversees quality, and Brian and partner, Bob Wachsmuth share production responsibilities for the farm and processing plant. The farm is 4,500 acres, 3,200 acres of which is dedicated to Red Kidney Beans which yields over 8 million pounds of beans a year. With expansion of the farm, the company has exponentially grown its processing operation and now processes beans from over 100 bean growers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. The Doanes have added many key personnel in the last ten years including Tricia Kwak, who as plant manager oversees quality systems, chief operating officer Tom Kwak, and two of the 7th generation of Doanes to join the farm and plant, Charles Wachsmuth in sales and marketing and Marcus Doane on the farm. The company greatly expanded its operation in 2020 adding a 75,000 square foot distribution center and updating the facility with an energy-efficient design built to reduce plastics, water, and waste. The company ships over half of the red kidney beans consumed in the world -- over 130 million pounds -- with international sales commanding 75% of their inventory. Today, Chippewa Valley Bean is looking for more local farmers to work with to grow the premium bean to satisfy the global demand for the protein and fiber rich, great-tasting Red Kidney Bean.
