2019 Humboldt County: Jim Kellner

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Humboldt County: Jim Kellner

 

Jim Kellner is the Humboldt County 4-H Fall of Fame 2019 inductee.

Jim owns and operates Dream Carriage of Humboldt. Dream Carriage offers horse drawn carriage and sleigh rides to the public all season long. One of his busiest times is around Christmas for sleigh rides around town to view the lights and caroling. A large thing Jim does is he offers carriage rides during the whole week of county fair. A lot of families and kids enjoy the ride around the fairgrounds and if you are lucky he may allow you to drive the horse.

For the past couple years the Humboldt County Fair Queen had the pleasure of receiving a carriage ride after she was crowned at the county fair. They also receive the privilege of riding in the carriage during the 4th of July parade.

Jim is an auctioneer in his free time. He has auctioneered for our local 4-H Foundation auction for the past 11 years. Each year he provides excellent service to the 4-H program. He has also been ring help and has helped to auctioneer at the livestock auction the Monday after the county fair ended. 

Jim enjoys allowing the kids to learn all about horses and driving his carriage.  During the fair you can catch him giving lessons on driving and allowing the younger kids to sit up front in the important seat.
