Located in Northwest Iowa, much of Hull's economy is centered around the agricultural industry, either directly or indirectly.



There are two banks with branches in Hull: Iowa State Bank and American State Bank. Iowa State Bank is well established, having started as Baumann Brothers Bank in 1879. American State Bank is a relative newcomer, opening at their permanent location in 2007.


The Hull Co-op Society provides a number of agricultural services to Hull and surrounding areas, including a grain elevator, feed mill, and custom spraying. Other businesses include Hull Feed and Produce which provides feed mill services, Van's Implement, LTD which provides sales and service of tractors and implements, and the Hull Veterinary Clinic.


The construction industry is also strong in Hull. This is due in part to a continual demand for new agricultural structures (especially hog confinements) and the growing nature of the town.
