Kristie Wetjen, executive director of the Amana Colonies Convention and Visitors Bureau, which organizes tourism in the area, said, "If the plant was to close down, it would have a huge impact on the community, financially and emotionally."
Tourism and farming were hit hard by summer floods that inundated 2,000 acres of the Amana Society's farmland, ruining crops and making the area temporarily inaccessible to tourists. The farmers' hardships are offset somewhat by high prices for corn and soy, said Wetjen, while the tourism industry rebounded in the fall, with its most lucrative Oktoberfest in more than 40 years, she said.
