Don and Nancy Linder

Faribault County

The Linder family farm was homesteaded by Jacob Linder in 1866. At that time, the Linder family lived in a sod house on the present family farm. Throughout the years, changes occurred to the farm and many children were brought into the family. Don’s parents Francis and Aggie even at one time had the farm expanded to 19,000 layer hens, 120 sows, and a herd of beef cattle. Don enjoyed farming with his folks and farmed with them until 1993 when he and his wife Nancy and their three children Andrew, Ben, and Megan moved out to then current Linder farm located in Easton, MN. Today the 650 acre farm consists of corn, soybeans, grass hay, and a small custom pig nursery as well as finishing a few head of cattle. Don also has a “Golden Harvest” seed sales business. On the farm, son Andrew is very active in the day to day operations and even though Ben and Megan are in college, they resume an active role in helping on the farm when they are home.

Don and Nancy are very involved in the community. Don and Nancy are Easton First Responders and past 4-H leaders. Don is a volunteer fireman and a member of the Faribault County Corn Growers. Nancy is a Nurse Practitioner at United Hospital District Clinics in Blue Earth, MN. Don and Nancy have 3 children, Andrew, Ben, and Megan. Andrew is a SDSU graduate, Ben is a 2nd year student at UMD, and Megan is a junior at St. Mary’s University in Winona.
