Houston County Farm Family

David and Sara Tessmer

The Tessmer farm was founded in the 1870s and is a fifth-generation farm. David and Sara are taking over the family farm from David's father, Eugene.

The Tessmers have a corn, soybean and hay cash crop operation, do custom harvesting, and have a 30-head cow and calf beef herd.

Their children, Madisyn, Makayla, Jayden, Brevyn and Laynie all help with the farm when they are available, and may be more involved in the farm in the future.

David is on the local FSA committee. Sara works at the community education office and is very involved in the community.
