Pennington County Farm Family

Tom and Lori Race Family

Tom grew up farming with his father in northwestern Minnesota’s Pennington County. Tom’s dad started farming at the current home place in the 1950s. Early on, the Races raised milk cows, pigs and small grains.

Today, Tom and his son, Collin, who earned a degree in crop and weed science from North Dakota State University, grow small grains on about 3,500 acres. In addition to helping around the farm Lori has been a cosmetologist for 32 years. Tom and Lori’s daughter, Madilyn, will be a junior this fall at Minnesota State University-Moorhead.

Tom and Lori are very involved in their community. They were recently named “Outstanding Farm Leaders” by the Red River Valley Development Association. Tom is current chair of the Goodridge Township board and a member of the Goodridge Trailblazers. Lori served as a Sunday School superintendent and a parent member of the post-prom committee. Tom and Lori are past members of the Goodridge Jaycees.
