Greg and Kari Scholtz
Greg Scholtz began farming with his parents Dennis and Diana Scholtz in 1983 when he rented his first acreage from his grandfather Leonard Scholtz, which was part of the farmstead that had been established in 1874 by his great-great-great grandfather, Johann Wendt. In 1985, Greg was married to Kari Schmitz of Springfield, MN. Soon after, they purchased their farm site northwest of Comfrey. Today their farm consists of approximately 550 crop acres growing corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and peas, and sweet corn for Delmont. They also have a cow/calf operation of 120 Angus and Angus based cows. Greg and Kari manage the farm, but all of the Scholtz children, Christopher, Andrew, and Emily continue to play an important role on the farm.
In the community, Andrew, Emily, and Chris were active in the Comfrey Comets 4-H Club and FFA. Andrew and Emily have been active in MN Junior Angus Association. Greg and Kari have been involved with Minnesota Angus Association and volunteers for Brown County 4-H. Greg also serves as a board member for the Brown County Ag Society.
