Lac qui Parle County Farm Family

Haas Farms

Steve Haas’s grandparents purchased the family farm in 1941. Over the years, Steve’s dad and uncles continued and expanded the operation. Steve started farming in 1988 with his parents, Herman and Eileen. Two years later, Steve’s brother, David, joined the operation. The Haas farm currently consists of corn, soybeans, seed sales and pork production.

Steve and his wife, Lisa, have four sons. The two oldest are involved in the farming business. Their son Seth and his wife, Tara, joined the farming operation in 2015 and their son Sam joined a year later. Steve and Seth own a seed business and sell Golden Harvest and Agri-Gold seed. Tara is involved with an online boutique business. Sam and his wife, Jessica, own a 3,300-head wean-to-finish barn and Jessica also works in the business office of Madison Healthcare Services. In addition, Steve and David own a wean to finish hog operation.

The Haases’ two youngest sons, Austin and Dain, live in the Fargo area. Austin is a realtor and will marry his fiancé Brooklyn this summer. Dain attends North Dakota State University and is planning to become a teacher.

Over the years, the Haas family has been involved in various community organizations. Steve participated in the Lac qui Parle Pork Producers and is currently a member of the Minnesota Corn and Soybean Grower associations. Steve and Lisa were involved in many athletic clubs when their sons were in high school. The families are active members of St. Michael’s Catholic Church. Seth is a member of the local fire department. Tara and Jessica serve on the board of Little Blessings preschool and Sam serves on the Little Eagles Daycare board.
