The Marx family farm in Wabasha has been in the Marx family for approximately 135 years and has been operating as a dairy farm for more than 5 generations.  The current farm is a dairy operation run by twin brothers John and Gene Marx.  The brothers milk twice daily, run 285 acres of rotational crops of corn, alfalfa, and oats, and have a small beef herd.  John and Gene have 100% involvement in the dairy operation.  Assistance during busy times comes from other family members.

In the community, John serves as a board member of Wabasha County FSA.  John’s wife Carol has served as a 4-H leader.  Both John and Gene have been involved in church activities.
