Known by outsiders mostly as the setting for the movie Fargo, the state of North
Dakota has a far more interesting history and culture than evidenced by this
trivial fact. It offers tremendous opportunities to businesses and workers
It has been and still is a major producer of many of the cereal and stock crops of
the United states including wheat, soybeans, lentils and sugar beets. Without this
most northern state, the U.S. and the rest of the world would surely be a hungrier
Indeed, there is much more to the story of this magnificent and sparsely populated
state. Since the turn of the new millennium, the sometimes named, Upper Dakota, has
exhibited a strong and vibrant economy. Though historically based primarily on
agriculture and food processing, the “Peace Garden State” has more recently
developed strong petroleum, technology and service sectors.
Energy production has seen a particularly dramatic growth with oil, coal and wind
energy being the most predominant. Its unemployment rate is below 4% and it has
some of the most affordable housing in the United States.
North Dakota remains an undiscovered treasure for entrepreneurs and workers alike.
There is plenty of opportunity for everyone in North Dakota.
