Faribault County Farm Family

Ron and Chris Schultz Family

Ron started working on his family’s farm when he was about six years old. He mostly tended livestock and moved to field work as he grew older. When Ron was a senior in high school, his father let him work a few acres of his own. He also milked cows and raised pigs. Ron later married Christine and the couple had seven children.

The Schultz family grows corn, soybeans and oats. They also raise cattle from calves to finish and recently retired from running a farrow-to-finish hog operation.

Ron and Chris’s sons, Dominic, Vincent, Bernie and Christopher, still help on the farm. Dominic, Bernie and Christopher farm with their dad, and on their own. Vincent returns to help with field work in the fall. The sons help order inputs and assist with planting, spraying, harvesting and tillage. The Schultz daughters, Andrea, Chelsea, and Marielle, helped on the farm while growing up.

Ron and Chris are very involved in their church, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Easton. Ron served for many years on the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic School board. Bernie is a township supervisor, volunteer fireman and on the church board. The Schultzes are members of the county, state and national Corn Growers Associations.
