MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota family will be special guests at the White House on Tuesday.

The White House named Ryan and Tiffany Batalden, of Lamberton, two of the “champions of change” in America.

They’re among 15 people being invited to Washington to discuss the next generation of farming and ranching in the U.S.

The Batalden family is a fifth-generation farming family in Cottonwood County. The couple has three young children.

They grow organic corn, soybeans, oilseeds and small grains, but they may be best known for their popcorn business called Patriot Pops.
