Charene Herrera and Lander Chamber Board Member Jenna Ackerman

In Lander the local community and its visitors have been blessed with a remarkable transformation over the years. In this episode of “The Lander Biz Show,” co-host Charene the “Adventure Queen” Herrera delves into the incredible journey of Jenna Ackerman, a long-time entrepreneur who started as a local restaurant owner and transitioned into the world of real estate. (Unfortunately, Chamber CEO Owen Sweeney was under the weather and unable to participate in this episode.)

Jenna Ackerman is a household name in Lander, known for establishing and successfully running “The Middle Fork” – a culinary treasure trove that became an absolute must-visit for tourists, guests, and locals alike. With dedication, passion, and a keen sense of community, Jenna turned The Middle Fork into a hub of delicious experiences, bringing people together over exceptional food.
