Hanson Silo was founded in Lake Lillian, Minnesota, in 1916 by Emil Hanson, a local farmer who envisioned a better silo product for himself and for his neighbors. His goal: manufacture an improved product at the best price with the lowest upkeep. For over 100 years and through four generations, the Hanson family has been involved with agriculture and has grown to symbolize quality, economy and dependability.
