In 2008, Lance & Megan Nobert made the decision to return to their roots in North Central Kansas. After 10 years of big city life, the Noberts packed up their young family and moved back to their hometown of 600 people. Trading in 6 lane highways for brick streets, both Lance & Megan knew they had made the right decision to raise their children in a rural environment so they as a family could experience all small town living has to offer.
Lance had fond memories of raising popcorn on his family's farm when he was a child, and decided it would be a fun project for his own family. It was on the Noberts' small tract of land in town, referred to as Loveland's Addition, that Lance planted his first popcorn crop. Loveland's Addition was added to the city of Clyde in 1900, and the Nobert's decided it was a fitting name for their new family business. It was indeed land filled with love. Then, in 2009, Loveland Acres Popcorn harvested its first ear of gourmet kernels.
Lance utilizes his personal experience growing up on the family farm, a college degree in Agronomy and professional experience working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to personally plant and harvest tender, virtually hull free popcorn.
