The Kneisl farm began in 1938 when August Kneisl purchased two 160-acre farms in Todd County. His son, Arnold, bought a 320-acre farm and a 160-acre farm in the 1960s. The farm is currently operated by Gary and Kathy Kneisl and their son, Jason, and his wife, Kala.
Gary and Jason are the farm’s main operators. They cash crop corn and soybeans and finish out beef feeders. Most of the current Kneisl farm is either irrigated or tiled.
Gary is a member of the Hewitt Lions Club, the Central Minnesota Irrigators Association, and the Irrigators Association of Minnesota. He’s also a member of the Todd County Corn and Soybean Growers Association. Jason is a member of the Knobhill Sportsman’s Club.
