McLeod County Farm Family

Lindeman Farms

Kevin Lindeman’s Grandpa Herman and Grandma Elise started the farm in March 1931 and operated it until 1959. Kevin's parents, Arthur and Lillie Lindeman, then took over and ran the farm until 1988. At that point, Kevin and Penny Lindeman became the farm’s operators and continue to run the farm today.

Previous farm operations consisted of dairy cows, farrowing pigs, chickens and selling eggs. Today, the Lindemans raise corn and soybean in rotation and some hay acres. The family operates an Isowean-to-finish hog operation, and the family finishes dairy beef.

Kevin is a full-time farmer and Penny helps with bookkeeping. Their son, Justin, farms full time. Justin and his wife Angie, have a daughter, Breckynn. The Lindemans’ son, Tony, works part time on the farm and Tony and his wife, Laura, have four children, Claire, Graham, Valerie and Jude. Kevin and Penny’s daughter, Nicole Weiers and her husband, Jake, have three kids, Margo, Quinn, and Murphy. Kevin's brother, Barrett, works part-time on the farm when needed.

Kevin is currently serving on the UFC Board of Directors and is a past member of the Brownton Co-op Ag Center Board of Directors. He is currently on the Buffalo Creek Watershed Board and a member of the McLeod County Feedlots board. Kevin is a member of the Knights of Columbus Council No. 4842 and served as a board member of the McLeod West School District for 13 years. Penny has been a Brownton Lions Club member for 30 years.
