Shakopee Valley News - Letters from Jan. 12 Changes needed in U.S. farm policy As citizens of Shakopee, many of us know of or remember how Shakopee used to look over 15 years ago. Most of Shakopee was covered with farm fields. Highway 169 did not divide our town, nor did Walmart -Mart or Target occupy Shakopee with business. Where did all those fields go? If you head south out of town, there you can find vast fields, which Shakopee resembled. Nevertheless, Shakopee was a proud farming community in past years.
