Hello! I'm Jason Diedrich. I'm a lifetime outdoorsman, hunter, and fisherman, and proud to say owner of River Valley. I have a passion for conservation, upland bird hunting, and dogs. In my youth I worked at a local marina. I commonly fished 5 days a week (it was great!). After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa, and playing for a really good rugby team, I entered the workforce. I managed a local True Value store for a few years, met my wife, and received an offer from my family to fill a management position on our family farm producing pork. I really enjoy farming, and I also really enjoyed and missed the customers and friends I had made through customer service in my previous employments. I established River Valley in 2011. I was able to tie together many of my passions, and fulfill a dream of owning my own business. Since inception I have worked hard to continue to add amenities and build my business. I thank you very much for your support as does my family!
