Redfield, S.D., could be called a small city or a big town. It has features that are the best of both.

“Main Street is a very interesting, fun place to go visit on a Saturday afternoon. You’ve still got those good, enjoyable family things and shopping” as in a larger community, according to Lisa Zens, executive director of Grow Spink, Inc., headquartered in Redfield.

Zens, who raised her two biological children mostly in Sioux Falls before moving to Redfield, where she gained four more through marriage, said the way she and her husband are raising their younger children is much different from how she raised the older ones.
