Andy and Jodene Stuewe
The Stuewe farm located in Hamburg, MN originated in Andy’s family. Within the last 10 years, ownership has transferred from Andy’s parents, David and Joyce Stuewe, to Andy and Jodene. The Stuewe’s currently run about 300 acres of land, all of which is rented. Of that 300 acres, 100 acres of alfalfa is made and fed to livestock, 125 acres of corn is used for high-moisture corn and corn silage, and the remaining 75 acres is in soybeans, which is all sold off the field for profit. Beyond the crops, the family milks 75 registered Holstein cows under the herd prefix of Flower Brook Holsteins. They also raise an additional 120 young stock.
Andy and Jodene both grew up on dairy farms. In fact, the two met at the Carver County Fair. Jodene was a dairy princess and Andy was involved with the 4-H and FFA. The Stuewe’s have been present in the community as they have in past years participated in the AG Leadership Program. They have also hosted the 2007 Carver County Twilight Meeting. Additionally, Andy has been involved with the Carver County Holstein Association. In the state, the family was named the 2008 Premiere Exhibitor at MN State Show and they bred and raised the 2009 Holstein Association Cow of the Breed.
