Julie Buntjer


Julie Buntjer grew up on a 96-acre hobby farm south of Worthington in Bigelow Township, where she raised goats, chickens, turkeys and — for a few years — sheep. This was back in the day when barns had to be cleaned with pitchforks, goats were milked by hand and feed was carried in five-gallon buckets!

After graduating from high school and earning her two-year Associate of Arts degree from then-Worthington Community College, she transferred to South Dakota State University and studied agriculture journalism. Her first "journalism" job was at Tri-State Neighbor, a Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based agricultural publication.

She went on to Redwood County, Minnesota, working four and a half years as a reporter at the Redwood Gazette, and four years as editor of the Wabasso Standard. In December 2003, she accepted a reporter position at her hometown newspaper, The Globe.

During her career, she's covered the city beat, the county beat, written countless features and enterprise stories for newspapers. Now, she manages the reporting staff, fills in to cover meetings as needed and is continually on the quest to report the news and share the stories of those who call this region home.
