Steve and Lisa Sontag

Chisago County

Steve and Lisa Sontag from Shafer have been on their farm for 15 years.  In the past, the couple milked cows, but now raises heifers and grows corn, soybeans, and hay on about 80 acres.  The Sontag’s also rent some land.  All of the Sontag family members are involved in the farm.  All four children; Jill (20), Sara (18), Bobby (17), and Mark (15), are always available to help.  Besides the farm, Steve works fulltime as a union carpenter and Lisa is a homemaker and does the everyday chores.

In the community, the four Sontag children are active in 4-H with their dairy animals and the shooting sports program.  They have also participated in FFA and various sports through their school.  The family is active at Chisago Lake Lutheran Church in Center City.
